Toy and Gift Stores thrive with Silhouettes by Cindi

Toys R US, closed due to no in-store marketing.  However, many gift stores, children's stores, 
toy stores, private pharmacy/stores, are realizing that to get traffic they must have a special event.
Cindi Rose is one of the only silhouette artists in the world that will not allow people to send in mail-order silhouettes.  She likes to impact lives and entertain people as she cuts portraits, an art she 
taught herself, as a teen while working in an amusement park.  www.

After working for Six Flags Over Texas, Astroworld, DisneyLand, Disney World, and finishing college by 21, Cindi realized that she could also do her artwork for many causes and in many areas.

She learned the best people skills at the Disney Theme Park schools required to work in the park.  That, combined with her honors degree from University of Texas, Austin in communications and marketing, as well as Fine Arts, make Cindi a fit in any business, understanding that you need her to perk up your sales. She generously gives all schools, stores, non-profits, a percent of sales, and the sales increase as well.www.

Many fine department stores have had Cindi there for the fragrance houses, as they also have other artists, some painting perfume-bottles for those who make a good purchase.  It is wise for merchandisers to even in-list costumed characters and to promote that, authors, chefs, designers, and to also benefit local charity.  When retailers, have special events and promote them through the many websites, bloggers, their email lists, local area publications, they will see their sales increase, and people will enjoy the experience of shopping in person, and not, on-line.

Concise History of Silhouette Artist and Art for dummies

The History of Silhouette Artists and Silhouette Art History for Dummies by Lizzie Dow What is a master silhouette artist?  A master silhouette artist normally is an artist who did portraits since a child (without lessons) and can translate that into cutting portraits.  Most worked for Disneyland or Disney World and can do the inside cut-outs and groupings together.  None use an overhead projector, or sketch it first, unless it is the entire body. How do you train to do silhouette portraits? If you train, or read a book on how to cut silhouettes, you will end up with generic silhouettes that don't look human, or do not have movement in the hair.  You may not be able to capture the exact details of a face.  The best silhouette artists never trained, they just could draw and one day they took any type of scissors and cut out a good looking profile portrait of someone. Who is the best living silhouette artist? The Guild of Papercutters (GAP) features Cindi Harwood as the premier silhouette artist. She is the current fastest silhouette artist in history as shown in the film "Silhouette Secrets." Kara Walker is the best fine-art living silhouette-style museum artist. When did silhouette art start? Some people will save the cave carvings where the first silhouettes, others say the faces on Greek urns.  In many books, it says a woman used a candle light to trace her boyfriend's shadow around 500 year's ago, and used soot or candle dirt to make the silhouette. This would be a primitive way to do it now, but a fun art craft project Are silhouette artists fine artists?</b> Most silhouette artists who do not sketch, use a light, do them in person, have fine art degrees. Some are better than others. The best silhouette artists have always been hired by Disneyland or DisneyWorld where the standard is higher. The exception is Varin of Sweet Silhouettes who also does intricate works, and couples together. Many good children's silhouette artists in stores can't do groupings, but can cut the beautiful details out. Look for the white lines in the hair and the bows when a silhouette artist comes to your city, don't settle for solid black silhouettes. You can order good silhouettes on-line from Paper Portraits. Is silhouette art passed down for generations? No, that is a sale's pitch. Not every family member is an artist from families. If one mastered silhouettes that does not mean their child can. Often, it can skip generations. Sisters Cindi Harwood and Holly Harwood both worked for the Disney amusement parks cutting silhouettes and also did them at corporate events. Who likes silhouette art? Anyone who appreciates beautiful art, tradition, family heirlooms, cameos, and trendy, yet classic decor love silhouettes. It is a great gift to parents and loved ones, and especially special at weddings and fine affairs. Should silhouettes be large or small? Miniature silhouettes of profiles, are the most desired and of real silhouette paper, not construction paper. It shows the artist was not a teacher who traced a shadow off a wall which is a distortion. They are not artists in most cases so it is never exact. It does not mean you won't treasure it, it just won't have a historic value, unless the subject becomes a celebrity. Some silhouette artists such as Edouart, John Miers, who have passed have silhouettes worth thousands. Peggy McClard art studio and antique dealer sells historic silhouettes. She also thinks highly of Silhouette Artist Cindi Harwood Rose, Kara Walker, Kathryn, and Charles Burns, currently alive. All these artists have mastered the art in a variety of modern styles. Cindi Rose, does an art deco interpretation, putting in four dimensions, including psychic silhouettes and the soul.Kara Walker is in the MOMA and won the Grant award, and is one of the world's finest living artists in all history. Her work is powerful with a message. They are large, but are not actual subjects they are made to compel the viewer to cringe, cry, and feel emotions. In some ways her work is similar to Charles Dickens silhouettes, with a character feel. Is speed important in silhouette art? Yes! The best silhouette artists feel and see, and capture the profile in 2 minutes of a subject with a smooth cut. Slower silhouette artists do cruder work, and the cut of the paper, is not as clean. When was the first real silhouette made and why? Not everyone could afford an oil portrait, and oil paints were hand-made from minerals and plants. A portrait may cost today as much as $100,000 500 year's ago. The artist may spend as much as 6 months painting a subject (as seen in museums, normally of royalty). As in the movie, "Girl with the Pearl", often the artist took advantage of the subject for personal reasons and they feel in love with the minors they painted. With the invention of the scissors, before photography, someone figured how to hand-cut a profile from black paper, they covered with a soot or black paint, made from scratch. This became the "poor man's portrait and was called shades. Later, Auguste Edourt named them silhouettes after a French minister of finance who loved silhouettes whose last name was silhouette. Where do you find a good silhouette artist? You need to compare silhouette artist's work on the internet, to see who can do the most intricate work, and read the reviews (making sure the language on each is different so you know they are authentic). In Europe, for example, they rarely put in eyelashes, and often, elongate the bottom torso, mounting the work with scotch tape. Some artists use vinyl paper so the silhouette itself is not smooth and the cut is a bit cruder, or the children have no details, the hair is the same or does not have many cuts inside it to give it life. I think you should search under the words, former Disneyland or Disneyworld silhouette artists to find the best silhouette artists. Where do silhouette artists work? Silhouette artists work world-wide for corporate events, weddings, private parties, school fundraisers, business holiday parties, and some in amusement parks. You can hire one from GigSalad, in the New York area, who will travel world-wide. In Europe, you can use Chosen Events. In Texas, Colorado, Louisiana,Nevada, Mississippi, silhouettesforsurvivors can find you a silhouette artist. At Orlando's Disney Springs (no cost to go), in the cart near the beautiful crystal shop and Ghirardelli chocolates is a great silhouette artist, Kathryn Flocken, with reduced prices and frames. She also sells a personal penned book about silhouette arts. She has many blogs one is Kathy and Cindi Silhouette Sisters, which is popular in New York City.How much is a silhouette? The price varies as to where you find the artist. At most venues the artists charge about $45 for a right and left view, but the venue must have booked the artist around 40 appointments to secure the artist. Disney Springs in Orlando has the most reasonable silhouettes done by masters anywhere.

Silhouette art makes a wonderful wedding!  It takes the wedding cake!

 Miss Cindi has hand-cut portraits for over 35 years, starting with amusement parks as a teen, including the Walt Disney parks.  At weddings she does 2 silhouettes of each guest (often 30 people or more per hour), one for each guest and one for a guest book!

Professional silhouette artists are an endangered species!

How to cut a silhouette portrait, How to hire a silhouette artist for an event

http://silhouettesforsurvivors.orgWhen researching for a silhouette artist one may not know that there is a difference between what your school teacher did tracing a shadow of a reluctant student,  and a master silhouette profiles, who is a real artist who looks directly to creates a likeness.  The artistan who is skilled in silhouette portraits  take any sized sharp scissors and cutout a miniature portrait in eight minutes or less.  The faster they are the better they are and the smoother the quality will be.  That is how you know quality in a silhouette artist.  It is by speed, details, and accuracy.  Silhouettes are prized to be framed in 5 x 7 or 4 x 6.  You can choose any color for your silhouette at a party (if you tell the artist ahead of time to bring colored paper other than black) and you can get them as large as a matted 8 x 10.  All silhouette artists can do them larger and they all could  paint your silhouette larger.  However the fun of a silhouette artist at an event is to watch the skilled professional  create psychic accurate likenesses of your guests to the tune of 12 to 30 people per hour, depending on how skilled they are (faster are better), or how quickly your crowd moves, or how great the artist's personality is, to attract a huge crowd around him/her as they work!  

  True silhouette artists (once called Shade artists) don't use a shadow, which is a distortion, they don't sketch it first (which means they can not draw freehand with scissors),  they don't use a computer program to black an image, they don't trace a profile photo to do a silhouette.  However, this is what you can do to make your own somewhat silhouette image!  A professional silhouette artist examines your energy and profile, and will cut your profile by looking at you., your pet, or your loved one. They can also draw your profile and were first portrait artists.  It is nicest if they have authentic silhouette paper which is white on one side and black on the other. This lasts longer than craft paper and will not fade in color.  If you are doing a home project I would suggest you do not use craft paper, go for a higher quality.  You can find real silhouette paper at school supply stores and Blick on-line or in Chicago. Most silhouette artists work in the USA, Canada, Europe, Bali, Australia, Japan, and Dubai.  Silhouette artists are normally entertainers and can entertain guests as they work.  Below is an example of fine art museum silhouette by Kara Walker, who uses her imagination to create a narrative that is provoking and spellbinding.

For a home do it yourself, it is fine to use the wall for your craft project, with a shadow, just don't confuse the minimal look of that with that of a master silhouette artist.  Both are special no matter what.  If you create your family's likeness from a photo, computer image, or shadow, it is a good treasure, and is easy to do.

The best silhouette artists worked for Disneyland and Disneyworld and have cut many profiles out, and are quick.  The faster the silhouette artist is, the better they are.  Speed is important for a silhouette artist!  Quality is speed in silhouettes! A person who can do silhouette art correctly is a dying species! The computer ones are normally not in proportion, although they are great for story books, logos, and invitations images. In this photo I am with a European silhouette artist, Charles. Silhouette artists travel anywhere they are commissioned.

Silhouette artists are great at school fundraisers, weddings, corporate events, private parties, business events, and celebrations.  They make a lasting treasured gift.  Here are two silhouette artist, Cindi Rose of Texas and Varin of California.  Cindi is holding the silhouette Varin did of her, and Varin is holding the silhouette Cindi did of her. Both artists work continually, travel, can do art illustration, interior details, couples together, and are personable.  These are the traits you need to look for if you want to hire a silhouette artist for an event.  You can contact for other silhouette artists should she not be available.  She shares New York with her silhouette sister, Kathryn of Orlando in their duo blog, Silhouette Sisters Kathryn and Cindi.  You can see more information about them on that blog, or SilhouettesbyCindi.blogspot and
