GOLD Freehand-Scissored Silhouette Portrait (1 copy per order)


One (1) freehand-scissored silhouette portrait from the same emailed portrait. This gorgeous, lustrous GOLD paper is perfect for weddings and special events, cut freehand in the traditional manner into your silhouette portrait. This photo does not do the luster of the gold justice. It is truly luminous. (GOLD EXAMPLE FRAME NOT INCLUDED)

People and animals are equally accepted for portraits. The silhouettes themselves are approximately 3-1/2 - 4" tall, and mounted on a 5x7 cardstock.

Please note that the GOLD silhouettes come in only 1 copy due to the costs of the materials.

Shipping, frames, mats, or folders are extra cost. Scroll down to read all information.

Email Your Photo:

  1. Send at least 2 (two) clear, in-focus, profile (side-view) photos by email. See image below image for hints.

  2. Profiles facing right are preferred.

  3. Send additional photos if possible. The more photos, the better chance to get a correct image.

  4. Photos should be ‘mid-chest’ to ‘top of head’ – your photos should not cut off top of the head or back of head.

  5. No smile: straight face with closed lips.

  6. Try to show a neutral background, preferably in a light color… or contrast to the hair.

  7. Tip for a great portrait: if you are a woman or a girl, put your hair up or back. Ponytails, buns, or braids look exceptional in silhouettes; long, loose hair does not look as classically beautiful as these styles.
