Do you craft bespoke concrete designs?

Yes - absolutely. It would be my pleasure to design, craft and finish something especially for you.
Some hints on how it works and examples are on my bespoke page and to get started right away contact me.

Looking forward to your ideas!

What size is my print in A-size, inch or cm? Can I get a custom size?

Bespoke finishes and custom sized prints are available upon request. 

The A Range is the most commonly used size range of papers and since size matters I created a table with all the information for you.

How long will it take?

Stationery + Air Plants are usually dispatched within 1 to 3 business days.

Concrete Sculptures & Vessels

usually take 3 to 5 days.

Photographic Art Prints are usually dispatched within 2 to 4 business days.

Bespoke Designs will take longer and will be quoted during the process.

 

Handmade sometimes takes time but it's worth it.


How does it work? 

It doesn't matter, if you are looking for help with a gift combination, a unique personalisation or looking to commission a unique piece we will always talk these things through [often via email]. Sometimes you provide inspiration, sometimes you share your idea and I create paper models or 3D models. Once we have agreed on a design I will create a custom listing featuring all the details for you. But no pressure - you are under no obligation to buy.


What is a 'Certificate of Authenticity'?

The certificate gives proof that this artwork is an original artwork created by PASiNGA.

It is not only signed and dated but also numbered and gives other important information about the photographic art print or sculpture.

Unwrap and straighten your photographic art print before framing and hanging

In general you will find a mark on the parcel where it would be best to start the process. Please be careful with knifes and scissors to not harm yourself but also to avoid cutting too deep into the parcel.
Make sure all tape and maybe dirty packaging is moved out of the way before you start to unwrap your print.
To avoid damage it is particularly important to handle everything with clean dry hands or maybe cotton gloves. The oils from your hands can effect the PH of the paper and even reduce archival qualities.

For straight/envelope shipped prints please gently remove the print from the cellophane sleeve taking special care that the sticky side of the sleeve does not make contact with the art print. 

For tube shipped prints please prepare a clean flat surface where the print can rest for 24 hours.
Take the print carefully out of the tube by sliding it onto the   prepared surface. Now gently take off the protecting thin paper.  Be careful not to bend the rolled paper as these creases will be permanent. You will feel that the print is moving to unroll itself, be careful with pressure or force as it may leave permanent marks.
Please don't put anything on top or pull on it - it is the best to just let it rest for a bit. Once the print has flattened / is straight again it is ready for framing and to be enjoyed.


 

How to care for your concrete sculptures and vessels?

Once your concrete sculpture is dry it will have the strength of and behave like terracotta or air-dried pottery. Water and rapid temperature changes will always be an enemy and your concrete art will age, change and interact with it's surroundings. Over time the colour will change or cracks occur.


Most of the concrete creations are not sealed and can't handle water very well. This is great when they are used with Air Plants as these plants and the concrete interact in a similar way with their surroundings. However, if you wish to use it with a different plant or as a vase which holds water you need to seal it.
Many tips and more concrete adventures can you find on my Blog section 'How Concrete'

 

How to care for an Air Plant?

Air Plants or Tillandsias are floating soil free living plants - which are cared for with air and from time to time water.
