Waxworksphoto return policy:
All fine art purchases, as most galleries, are a final purchase of sale. However, if a piece is damaged during shipping, it must reported within 24 hours of receipt of delivery. From there every effort humanly possible to repair or have the artist replicate and replace the piece will be made or to refund the purchase price through insurance. If there are any issues with the piece based on your order, we will investigate the issue. No guarantees will be made of a return or refund until the order has been thoroughly researched. If you are dissatisfied with the quality of the piece, we will also research the order and consider the options. Our customers are of the utmost importance to us and we want you to enjoy every purchase for a lifetime. However, since each piece is custom made, it is extremely important that you are thorough with reading through the notes on every piece and the outcome, which they produce.
Turn around time for ALL Waxworksphoto pieces is approximately 8-10 weeks. You are responsible for the cost of shipping the piece, which is sent 2-day or overnight Federal Express. Charges are dependent on the season, since wax stability is based on heat and humidity levels. During extreme weather the stability of the wax during shipping can be altered so we pack them the best of our ability and count on you as the client to receive the package in a timely manner as to not leave it out in any unstable and uncontrolled environment; such as outside. If the weather is too extreme for shipping, we will notify you that the delivery will be delayed.
Wax on Wood disclaimer:
The wax on wood piece is covered with an 1/8" of beeswax that really changes the image to create a soft focus feeling. The translucent beeswax is then enhanced with oil paint and resin medium. This is our most artistic and altered mixed media piece, it truly transforms photographs into mixed media art. Wax on wood comes on a standard 1" wooden box panel in sizes up to 30 x 40. It can also be made on a 1/2" flat panel and framed. There is an additional fee for upgrading to a 2" panel.
Tip: Our general rule of thumb with this process is that images that work best are ones that don't have blur or textural filters done in Photoshop. The wax will decrease contrast and focus approximately 50%. So starting with an image that is already sharp and has great tonal range is best. It is similar to veiling an image with a soft focus filter number 5.
Panel construction: Wax on wood box panel comes as a standard 1” panel. There is also an option to get a 1/2" panel that can be framed and there is an additional fee for upgrading to a 2" panel. Upgrade is calculated on a per panel quotes basis.
