Frequently Asked Questions

How do you create the silhouettes? TOP

Karl personally cuts each silhouette freehand using a pair of surgical scissors and simply looking at the subject's profile (either in person or a photo).  This is the traditional way silhouettes have been done for centuries.

What are the silhouettes made of? TOP
Karl cuts all the silhouettes freehand out of archival quality acid free paper.  Each silhouette is then mounted with acid free glue onto a vellum cardstock backing.  Each original work of art is then signed and dated in pencil.

Are your silhouettes computer generated? TOP
NO!  Each silhouette is a one of a kind, original work of art that is cut out entirely freehand.  Karl simply looks at his subject either live or from a photograph and cuts out their exact likeness.  This is the traditional method used by true silhouette artists for centuries.

Do you guarantee your work? TOP
Yes!  Each original work of art is guaranteed to be an exact likeness of the subject.
