The one thing that seems to be confused the most is our rendering process…So I am posting this to share with you a more in-depth description of how it works.
Renderings are digital concepts of images I like or am inspired by, for the mixer shape, that I collect. They are only to gain an idea of layout, direction, sometimes colors and feel. They are never intended to be an exact representation of the artwork to be commissioned. I like to refer to them as our loose guideline, something to build from…as our inspiration or a foundation to ensure we’re both on the same page.
Sometimes when we go to paint the designs, they need to be adjusted to compliment the mixer shape. Sizes can vary, colors vary, and I may like to feel inspired to add additional things. Things I feel will take it to whole different level. A level that improves the initial concept we discussed.
The fee is $150 to start. Each fee allows for up to 3 variations. If you choose to move forward upon approval the fee that was paid goes towards the artwork. If you choose not to proceed, the fee in non-refundable for my time.
If you do require more than 3 variations I will discuss your options further…the fee will not go towards the artwork because of the additional invested time it takes me to do the work. Additional fee may apply.
Here are a few examples for you to compare the concept, to completion of each hand crafted KitchenAid mixer!
