Alice’s Tea Party Limited Edition Print
This stunning “Alice’s Tea Party” Limited Edition Print is special because each of these is printed in de Shan’s studio on fine art paper with the highest quality inks, and each of them is then hand-signed and numbered by de Shan. The print runs are small, meaning they will run out and you will have purchased an original print.
Each print is hand-embellished differently and this particular run of prints has the following:
- Glitter on the Mad Hatter’s hat, the Queen’s eye makeup, the pink chair, the Twins’ red suspenders and Alice’s bow.
- Gold paint on the watch, the chair back and the Queen’s crown.
- Glow-in-the-dark paint can be found on the watch face, the caterpillar and the entire floating Cheshire Cat*
These lovely Limited Editions are a bit special and need to be explained in a bit more depth.
Concept and Drawing: When you read up on your favourite character portrait in its description box on my website, you will have read that each one of my illustrations is created by request from my loyal customers and social media followers. Each is drawn freehand which means that they are made from the cross-hatching and intricate plan work of fine felt tip and ballpoint pens. This involves hundreds and thousands of lines which take countless hours. This process is known as pen and ink crosshatching and is a very intricate and painstakingly time-consuming process. de Shan’s discipline, concentration and attention to details gives each piece a life of its own.
Colouring: Once finished each drawing is then scanned and the favourite drawings are put in the line to be coloured digitally for printing. During the colouring process, de Shan creates layers and layers of colour applied using the mouse as a paintbrush, which gives a more freehand look and vibrancy of colour.
Hand-embellishing: At that point, each character goes on to have its own print made, but these Limited Editions are special. de Shan spends a few more hours to create a collaged group of characters, arranging and creating an interesting background and then printing them on a 300gsm fine art paper with fade-proof inks. She then adds the embellishments individually such as glitter, gold paint and glow-in-the-dark paint*. They are now original prints, which are all signed and numbered in a limited run of 50-100.
* To activate the glow, simply shine a bright light on the illustration for a few minutes prior to turning out the lights. Watch in amazement as the areas glow subtly for an hour. Repeat each time you wish to see the glow, or maybe your illustration sits in a bright sunny area and will glow at night on its own. Glow-in-the-dark lasts about a year and can be re-applied.
Each print is finished with a white mat board window mount and backing board made in the UK at a fine paper mill. We then sleeve the matted print in cellophane for protection.
