Custom Family Crest / Custom Coat of Arms - original artwork + design
The most important part of this family crest is your story.
Create a completely custom coat of arms. This original art comes unframed and is created entirely based on your direction. This art includes 24k gold accents.
Here's my process:
You can send me a brief bio with ideas about the things that are important in your family.
I'll present a computer generated sketch for approval after your order or deposit.
We can adjust fonts, mottoes, colors, and parts of the art.
After approval of the computer sketch, I'll draw the piece.
The design of these pieces require substantial communication from you. This is created entirely based on your direction with as many adjustments as you need. Here's a few ideas of items to include in your custom coat of arms:
Symbols to represent your job or hobbies
Flags from countries in your heritage
Flowers or favors from your wedding
Pets or meaningful animals
Religious symbols, items to represent your faith
References to nicknames, family jokes, or stories
The process usually takes about three weeks to a month.
I love making art, so I use only the best materials. I use Winsor and Newton watercolors and real gold leaf. I draw with a dip pen using black or sepia permanent india inks.
