Sending your photo Simply select your favorite photo of your pet and email a copy. For best results, send the highest quality photo to firstname.lastname@example.org. If the photo is too large to email, contact for alternative methods of file delivery. The artist welcomes photos of any pet including dogs, cats, birds, fish, horses, snakes, lizards, chickens, pigs and even rocks!
Photos taken at your pet's level are the best. Avoid taking images standing above your pet looking down.
Care Instructions Your portrait will arrive with a mat attached, the bevel directed inwards. Due to the special nature of chalk pastel, the inward facing bevel allows for the pastel to "rain" and collect behind the mat. This "rain" is not significant, but does occur overtime. Avoid touching the finished portrait as the chalk pastel will come off onto your hand.
Additional tips For best results, purchase an additional mat in the color of your choice to place over the existing mat and place the entire package inside a frame. Always frame chalk pastel paintings behind glass. This will protect your portrait and provide a beautiful finished product. Also, avoid hanging the portrait in any location of your home which receives intense direct sunlight to prevent condensation.
