ORIGINAL HAND-CUT silhouette papercuts by John Speight.


The size of the papercuts are approximately 64mm x 79mm. 

The outside of the mount is approximately 160mm x 280mm.

These are original silhouette papercuts, not prints.

Each picture is hand-cut by myself (John Speight) using a scalpel and is then mounted onto watercolour paper that has been airbrushed with a precise mixture of three acrylic inks. The pictures are supplied unframed and in a hand-signed mount. 

The designs are replicated but as each picture is individually cut there are small differences that make each an original artwork.

The silhouettes come packaged with a backing board in a clear polypropylene bag, and a sticker is enclosed saying that it is a hand-cut silhouette, cut with a scalpel by John Speight. The sticker is for sticking on the back of the frame after framing.

Also enclosed is a flyer entitled "About Your Silhouette" which explains how the papercut is made and tells a little about my family's papercutting history. I come from a family that has nearly a century of papercutting experience. Beginning with my Grandfather in 1921 I'm now the third generation to papercut and I have been a professional cutter since 1990.

I normally dispatch pictures within five working days.
