What’s Hand Embellished

Often a question that we are asked in the shop, what’s hand embellished? The simple answer is the artist adds either additional layers of paint, diamond dust, hand-made elements, decorative frames or something else to make a standard print more special. Often with hand-embellished prints the edition size is limited as well.

Some examples:

Paul Oz - Limited Edition canvases that have thick layers of acrylic paint over the top of the print. This gives you a fairly large scale framed canvas which is a mix between a print and an original. #pauloz

Kealey Farmer - One original and forty five limited edition paper prints that are embellished on the print with special pens and hand-made elements are placed on top of the glass. #kealeyfarmerart

JJ Adams - While in general JJ doesn’t embellish any prints, occasionally the publisher launches some special editions that feature splatted frames. #jjadamsart

Richard Blunt - Standard paper prints or hand-embellished canvases. The canvases tend to be small editions, either 10 or 15 worldwide. Each features hand painted highlights using oil. #richardblunt

Mark Davies - This Artist supplies both flat prints on paper or canvas and embellished. Mark likes to go to town, burning frames, breaking glass or Perspex and uses diamond dust. #markdaviesart

In general, a hand-embellished print is the next best thing if you can‘t stretch to an original, they often have the added value and are much more desirable.
