Optional Shine Finish

The optional Shine finish I use on my custom paintings pet portraits raises the presentation and depth of colour of the pet portrait artwork. This glass-like super gloss finish on part of the artwork ties in well with modern interiors, where sleek lines and polished surfaces set off the simplicity of the style..

The 'Shine finish' is an option you can choose to finish your pet portrait artwork (note there is an additional cost).   You may also want to have a look at the other option offered as a finish - the Elegance finish

These pet portrait paintings are unique and interesting, where a high gloss - almost glass-like finish is applied to a part of the painting, and what happens is truly amazing.  . See the BEFORE and AFTER example by scrolling down this page to the Example 'Pretty Portable' below.

Vibrant colours become even more vibrant and deep in the thick gloss layer that adds another dimension to the artwork. If your home decor is modern and sleek, with a crisp finishes and styles, opting for this finish will present an original and stylish artwork that will have your friends admiring not only your beautiful furbaby, but also the way you have chosen to celebrate your 'best friend'.   

Please pop back to my custom painting page to get pricing and information about other optional finishes available to you.
