Papel Picado Custom Order

An etsy shop customer custom ordered these hand cut papel picados from me (it took a long time, but it was fun and worth it!) and strung them up above her headboard. I was speechless when I saw this! I want to make more! Get your custom orders to me if you want your own custom papel picados!

Custom Papel Picados

Due to a happy misunderstanding, I have started creating custom papel picados. I thought I was being commissioned to create my papel picado designs, done digitally and then printed out. But my customer wanted actual cut out, custom picados. I saw it as a challenge and an opportunity to create what I’d always wanted to try, but never actually had the time to do. Yes, it’s hard work, but I enjoy it much more than I thought I would. I’m pretty quick at it as well! Recovery for my hand is the longest part of the process. Here are the first two of a 5 piece series. I’ll be working on 3 tomorrow and hopefully get 4 and 5 done this weekend. Stay tuned! And let me know what you think of these so far!

My Beautiful Customers!

Diana

Here’s my beautiful neighbor Diana wearing one of our Creamsicle Calavera Flowers! I only have one left so make sure to contact me if you want it! $8.00 + S/H.

Cherie

This is a commissioned portrait from my customer Cherie. Based off of the reference photo she provided as well as her love for the combination of pink and brown, I was inspired by the feathers (and by watching Boardwalk Empire over and over again) and lights for this delicate and ethereal feel. Portraits are available for $40 at the shop, one person. If you need more than one person in the portrait, let me know!

Stay tuned for more heavenly, cute, and sometimes creepy things at Heavenly Skull!
