1. Do business with a real artists studio
To begin with, make sure that the website you choose represents a painting workshop, where you will have access to the painting being prepared. Most internet resellers actually buy from China's reproduction factories, where the canvases are painted in chains in dubious conditions.
At Painting Reproductions (Cau Tai Gallery), we have a large workshop, where painters make your painting copies in better conditions than in the US. We do not store many paintings, and, when you order, we prepare your artwork especially for you, from cutting the canvas to its finish and packaging.
2. Art reproduction techniques
Technically, we start from the darkest layers, without details, to gradually go up to the clearest tones, refining the details as we progress through the painting.
For the luxury line, we do not work in linear (colors juxtaposition), but in successive layers, that are superimposed in transparency (the glaze, a classic oil painting technique). Hence more work and material, but an exceptional result.
3. Deadlines and prices for your painting reproduction
Each painting is made after order, according to your specifications. Paintings are classified in three difficulty levels, depending on the level of details, the number of subjects and the textures.
If certain paintings are easy to reproduce, some can be extremely complicated—I am thinking of old masters paintings that are full of details, for example.
Most of our painting reproductions are done in about five to six weeks. The luxury line’s within eight to ten weeks.
4. Sending of your paintings with a professional shipping company
It’s important for us to make sure that your painting arrives in good condition.
Some professionals send your painting parcel by the regular post office, at your own risk. The transport than can take up to several weeks, under conditions that are questionable, to say the least.
A professional carrier do all our shipments—UPS or Fed-Ex for the United States. The package will arrive in good condition at your place, few days after it is sent, and you are insured in case of degradation or loss.
