Amor - Bride & Groom

Amor – Novio y Novia

This is part of a series of Day of the Dead wedding cake toppers.  These paper mâché figures are molded and have a single body; the skulls stuck on toothpicks: part two-headed monster and part newlyweds, full of glitter and Mexican charm.  The groom is positively courtly in his tux and top hat.  The bride may look demure, but she’s not.  They are going to a party when this cake is cut.  ¡AMOR!

All Amor Prints can be personalized with the couple’s names and wedding or anniversary dates printed on the cake.  A great gift for the happy couple.

 

There is an additional $35 charge to personalize the print.  When you place your order, send me a message by email with the names and date.  I will arrange for payment.

I get much of my inspiration for my Dia de los Muertos images from actual photographs that I take.  Puerto Vallarta’s Malacon (beach boardwalk) is filled with enormous Day of the Dead figures and altars on the days leading up to November 2.  I visit several times that week during different times of day to take photographs with my point-and-shoot camera.  I then bring them to life, imagining them living, breathing and moving.  My husband and I are Day of the Dead aficionados.  Our wedding was filled with papel picados, paper flowers, pinatas and marigolds.  The groom cake toppers home from Puerto Vallarta my partner of almost 30 years popped the question. Our fabulous wedding photographer Corinna See took the photo that inspired the original “Amor.”  I created the other “Amors” from paper mâché wedding cake toppers that I photographed.

Basic Material & Edge | Finish options below

Fine Art Paper Finishing

Unless otherwise requested, all fine art paper prints will come with a one-inch border for ease of framing.   If you don’t want a border, let me know.  The art looks beautiful without a border “floated” (placed on top) of matte board. 

There are several options with deckled edge which should be floated on a matte.  Please contact me to discuss the options.

Canvas Stretching

I print on two types of canvas, matte finish (an elegant, smooth flat finish) and gloss finish (shinier and reflective).  In general, I prefer the matte finish.  These can be thin stretched on ¾ inch stretcher bars.  They can be hung unframed or framed.  Some pieces can be gallery wrapped where the image wraps around the side.  Or the side can be white, black or a complimentary color that I usually choose to go with the artwork.  There are other options.  You can have the canvas stretched over 1.5 inch stretcher bars, a dramatic look. 

Metal Prints

The metal prints have the look of a plexiglass or acrylic print and are more economical.

The Metal Print with a Float Hanger  

The surface white Gloss Metal Prints has a white base to maximize color and contrast. Its high gloss surface provides a metallic look while preserving the white points in an image. Final product should display high level luminescence effect for seemingly superior image density and contrast.

Metal Silver Gloss

The surface has a clear metallic base providing a true metallic look. Higher gloss surface allowing a more silver appearance. Provides a maximum luminescence effect for seemingly superior image density and contrast.

I am happy to provide advice on framing and can help you with this process.  Contact me.  I love to work with my clients!
