same with question of screenprint over mixed media. bummed not more want toned down colors to make look more elegant but add the gloss to make it pop a bit but not surprised cause a prefabs work, but those that want the bright/metallic why goin with the matte and not gloss - theme of artwork prefab choice so whats the point of doin a commish, brigitte bardot ftw

It makes sense. It was my first time selecting and I went with what the mental picture i wanted but i could see me adjusting my vote once i know what the price point and image will be. it makes sense to me to vote in stages once you get a direction of where the artist is going.

Prefab77 are getting some images and colour palettes together for us to again vote on, and should be back soon

The print run will cost £200
There is also an opportunity for those that voted for something special on wood/metal to possibly get an edition of 10 special pieces. (cost £450-£500)(I will contact those that voted that way to check for interest)

Once image design and colours have all been tied down, its only fair that full payment is taken before Prefab77 start work on them, this will then determine the final edition size.

There were 56 surveys sent out and 54 replies received, Has anybody got any opposition to the edition size being a maximum of 56.
This allows everyone involved up to this point to get a piece of artwork.

The vote for Screenprint will consist of a screenprinted layer, as with a lot of Prefab77 works, there will be loads of painted layers


Prefab have confirmed the technique will be:

i) Painted Background (we can discuss color options, Light Grey, Light Yellow or another color)
ii) Printed Pattern (in a light color, maybe gold?)
iii) Hand stencil layer for the Specials, Printed layers for the Main
iv) Black layer print (I normally use a UV gloss layer which makes it pop agains the Matt background)
v) Hand finish, Double stamp, Signature

Prefab77 will show the design steps of all of this and are really up for creating something top class for the group

Can't speak for all but I don't think that there should be any objection over edition size and letting everyone who has expressed interest thus far to join.

i have no word in this as i didnt join, but two cents.. mixed media is a given. screen print with some spray paint. this makes it so each print is slightly unique. more personal for a private commission. personally, i dont think there has been anything that has matched the series on reflective decal stock. female portrait, yes. something dealing with the queen? i feel that could be gold. i imagine something with some nice gold or silver spray paint. pops during normal light but brings another dimension in darkness. $.02.

dont mind me tho. i might be a little bias.

love all that, mixed media screen print with spray paint making each one a bit unique great idea. only thing tho is it wont be a wall hanger if it is of the queen, but god save her anyway - maybe we could generate a list of female names, limit it to a certain number, and have prefab have one of those as the 3 options

Yeah, I wouldn’t hang a print of the Queen, but if it was Marilyn Monroe or Audrey Hepburn...I’d hang for sure

I still would love him to do one of Brigitte Bardot or Grace Kelly. The Queen comment got me thinking - how bout the beautiful Princess Kate Middleton? No prints of her yet that I'm aware of and he like the challenge. Can we provide a list of 5-8 names for one of the three possible options with him getting to choose which draft up?

Kate is banging, like I said challenging but to make it elegant yet sexy and funky, prefab style
