What Kind of Materials Do You Use To Draw Artwork?
The materials I use are very high quality materials such as those used in galleries or museums. I do not make my picture cheap to make money, and I am very proud of it.
CANVAS – I’m using ultra thick, acid free, triple primed fine cotton canvas, skillfully woven from high-grade, 100% cotton yarns.
STRETCHER BARS – First quality precision-cut kiln dried solid pine wood bar that are made in USA. The best bars to use for a clean modern Gallery Stretching / Museum Stretching finish.
PAINT & VARNISH – I use the best acrylic / oil paint with strong pigment, paint my painting with a matt varnish that provides UV filtering and protects the art from environmental pollutants.
Does a painting come with a Frame?
Nope, a painting does not include Canvas floater frame. If you want to frame your art, please go to the Frame Option page and purchase the frame you want. We will send you framed artwork.
Is your painting a giclée or print?
Nope, they are all 100% hand-painted. Part of Hyunah’s collection is available on Art Print section as a high-quality art print by Art.com. Except that section, all paintings are 100% hand-painted by Hyunah Kim.
How does Made To Order differ from Reproduction drawings?
Reproduction paintings are drawn in the same size at least 10 or more at a time, even if the owner of the painting is not determined. The paintings that we often see in furniture stores are those produced through this reproduction process. On the other hand, the Made To Order painting is very different from the Reproduction since it is drawn in the desired size after the owner is decided.
Sometimes, when a customer requests to highlight a specific composition or requests a color change, this can be reflected in Made To Order. Reproduction and Made To Order must be very different in terms of painting quality. Compared to the Reproduction paintings produced by a factory, the Made To Order, which prepares each painting after receiving an order from a customer, requires more effort than the Original Painting in terms of time and effort. I think you should distinguish between Production and Made To Order.
What Does “Stretched” or “Unstretched” Mean?
Stretched Canvas means that the painting comes with 1.5 inch thick wood stretcher bars that have been attached against the back of the painting. This simply means that you are able to hang my painting on a wall once received (no wire needed).
Unstretched Canvas is a painting that does not contain any stretcher bars on its back to support it. That is the reason we were able to roll your artwork and ship it via mailing tube. Once you receive your Unstretched painting you can take it to your local framing shop and decide for yourself, it is beautiful both ways, gallery wrapped or framed. I prepare all of my paintings with an additional 3″ on all sides for stretching.
What is Made To Order? Different from Originals?
If you found an Original Painting that you loved but it has now sold and is no longer available, then a Made To Order is a good option for you. Or if you want a bigger or smaller size from original painting, Made To Order will be good option for you also.
Obviously re-producted painting won’t be 100% identical to the one pictured from original, but we promise you it will be every bit as beautiful. You will receive the same quality and beauty of the painting that you see in the pictures. We will send you a photo of your painting prior to shipping for your approval.
Why is the price of Made To Order cheaper than Original Painting?
Personally, I think they shouldn’t be much different. Just because I started my online business at Etsy, I had to be a competitive seller there, and also because I couldn’t make my personal website price different from Etsy, I’m keeping the low price of Made To Order. The reason that the price of Made To Order is cheap is not because it is inferior in quality to the original, but in that it can save all costs.
Customers would not be able to easily imagine the artist’s warehouse. It’s like a vault where hundreds of paintings should be kept at the right temperature. Hundreds of original paintings are kept in such a space. Naturally, if you want to keep for months or years, it will of course take a huge storage cost, and it will have to be melted into the price of the original painting. In comparison, Made To Order does not require storage, so it is natural that it is inexpensive.
