How do I know if my picture will make a good Photo
The subject to be cut out of your photo should not have any
of the main components cut off, such as arms, legs, your
pets ears, paws or tail. Waist high shots make good photo
sculptures, as long as the total upper body is in the
picture. The main subject should not be blocked by other
objects such as tree limbs etc. The best subjects stand out from the
background with enough contrast between the subject and
background to be able to follow and cut out the subject. When taking your photo try to
get as close to the subject as possible while staying in focus.
We will size your photo to be as large as possible for the

your digital photo by email, send the original file from the
camera not the photo sized for email. This will provide the maximum

or 8X10. Your original photo is scanned and sent back
to you. This process provides the largest possible sculpture for the size ordered maintaining the proper height to width aspect ratio of the subject in the
photo without distortion.
edited photo is then printed on high quality photo paper. The
next step is to laminate the photo using high quality
acrylic to protect the photograph from moisture and
scratches. The photo is then attached to a Plexiglas backing.
is sculpted removing the background and attached to the Plexiglas base. The
base is made of 1/4 inch Plexiglas and the back of the
sculpture is 1/8″ or 3/16″ Plexiglas.
