To have your silhouette portrait cut is a very personal experience.
Using just scissors, paper and a keen eye, our silhouette artist observes your profile and cuts the outline of your face. It only takes a few moments to produce a likeness that will leave you feeling astounded. She describes the process as ‘drawing with scissors.’ The result is an elegant artwork that you will want to frame and cherish forever.
This art form was the ‘selfie’ of its time in the Victorian and Edwardian periods, yet silhouettes have been reinvented today as a unique party entertainment idea. Their graphic effect gifts this style of portraiture a modern, trendy edge while also embodying a timeless classic appeal.
Having a Silhouette Artist at your event is a fabulous idea because:
- The portraits are mounted in cards which can be customised and act as a branded memento from the event that guests can take away and share with others.
- The result is immediate giving your guests a charming personal portrait.
- Silhouettes create a great ice breaker opportunity at drinks receptions. They get guests chatting as they compare their portraits and marvel at the speed and accuracy of making them.
- While cutting, the silhouette artists shares stories of her interesting silhouette related encounters and answers guests questions about her art.
