Custom Painting Info and Pricing

Due to high volume, the lead time year round is between 4 to 5 months before a custom painting is completed.


The process:

Initially, a down payment of half of the full amount is processed, this includes half of the shipping. After receiving photos of your dog, a "full color" preliminary sketch is painted and sent back to you via email for your approval. At that time you may make any changes within the design that you prefer or review it with different background colors of your choice. Upon your approval of the preliminary design the other half of payment is due, it is then painted to canvas and shipped within the time frame agreement.


There are two different types of paintings, the first consists of oil paint on canvas - finished in a UV protective clear coating. The second version consists of the initial oil painting plus an additional application of automotive metal flake (sparkle), finished in a high gloss resin top coating which magnifies the metal flake and protects the piece in a variety of ways including UV.

Metallic Flake Canvas Example

Note: The video below does not fully show the depth of the automotive metal flake as the colors and sparkle do not entirely translate through photos or video, the effect is washed out by aproximately 60% through the camera eye. It must be viewed in person with the human eye to capture the full effect of this application. This understanding and a  bit of imagination is helpful when viewing the video. This is the best we can show it with the limitations of current video technology.
