    1. Get in touch. Just use the contact page to tell me your ideas. I’ll advise as to what I can create for you, the cost and time-frame. Please note: I don’t do small icons and there is a fee threshold of £500. GBP

    2. If things are acceptable, await the first design draft to approve and/or amend.Formal d/design packages for approval bodies/FACs/DACs can be provided. A deposit may be required to begin the work.

    3. Await photos and videos the finished work for your approval. Pay by transfer or paypal. Having received payment, the work will be sent via a priority parcel service.

    Quality materials

    The icon boards are beautifully made to the highest professional standards from linden wood with rebate and bracing if required. The gilding is 23ct gold leaf (matt or burnished water gilding) and the paint is classic egg tempera. In other words, the traditional materials used in late medieval panel painting.
