HAND EMBELLISHED PRINT
A hand-embellished giclée is a limited edition giclée that has been printed on canvas and then paint has been applied over parts of the canvas by an artist giving the piece texture and a more similar appearance to an original painting. Each one is unique in that there has been paint applied by hand. The paint highlights the piece, but it is not painted entirely by hand as an original painting would be.
Embellished canvases involve greater participation on the part of the artist than an unembellished one, allowing art lovers to get a step closer to an original at a fraction of the cost. Embellished editions are usually created at a lower quantity than the unembellished editions.
The more limited supply and increased demand make for a more collectible piece of art. Hand embellishing adds to the value of the piece.
Some artists may only use a small amount of paint on their hand-embellished canvases, while others are known to paint quite a bit on them. Cory's hand embellished canvases have a light application of texture and are hand signed.
