Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: What are these, paintings for ants?

A: Nah, I was never that into Zoolander. These canvases are 2"x2", which is huge in the ant kingdom! For even smaller art, you should check out Lorraine Loots who is doing incredible things with watercolours.

Q: What kind of paints are these?

A: Right now, I'm primarily using some Holbein acrylics! They're quite thick and are super bright. I will sometimes mix in the first batch of paints I used, which are a super-thin Americana acrylic. 

Q: Are these sealed in any way?

A: Yes! Currently using Matte varnish to maintain the texture, but I'll be experimenting with glossy soon to see if I like it better. The varnish should help protect it from any odd conditions, however acrylic itself is very stable and isn't prone to heat or fading. I mean obviously if you tried to melt it, you could, but please don't.

Q: How do the prints look?

A: They look pretty darn good! I'll be taking photos of the sample prints I receive from my california lab soon, in the meantime I have printed a few tests for friends and family and the 10x10 size is ideal. An early mistake was printing on matte paper, prints are now on Premium Lustre paper which keeps the brilliant colour and is less prone to fading over time. 

Q: How long do these take?

A: Woof. Usually about two, maybe two and a half episodes of Radiolab? Roughly 3 hours per canvas at least!

Q: How long have you been painting?

A: Not long! I picked up a few miniature canvases at a crummy art store and started painting along with big poppa Bob Ross. My first one was Cherry Mountain in March of 2016.

Returns and Services:

At the moment, other responsibilities and general "mid-20's lack of money" syndrome, I have to drop-ship prints from a lab in California. As a result, I can't accommodate returns on framed or rolled prints. Sorry!

That said, should you purchase an original canvas, and you're less than satisfied with the product upon arrival, absolutely get in touch with me at mackie.christian@gmail.com and we'll work together to organize a return and a full refund. 

Shipping is also handled by the aforementioned lab, which is great news for everyone - not only can I offer a wider range of shipping options, the lab also knows what they're doing and I won't be able to get in the way. Rad!
