Some projects are about colour and colour mixes with the client, hence the sample is an interactive process which is resolved on site to a finish, quality and scale that the client can appreciate and approve.
Complex projects require samples to be made in the studio for later presentation, usually these are carried out on boards of varying sizes until a finished product is achieved. The artist assembles the information learnt at the previous brief meeting and using skills and imagination produces small section versions representing the decorative scheme.
Design and artwork
Templating and installation
Site measurements are not the most exciting part of being a decorative artist, however accuracy is of the utmost importance if one is to be able to manufacture works off site for later installation. Croxford and Saunders prefer to complete our own site surveys where possible.
Once areas are mapped out works can start in the studio, we tend to use modern polymer canvas for larger areas as it is dimensionally stable when fitting, thereby overcoming many of the problems encountered when sizing and stretching traditional canvas. Croxford and Saunders can oversee installation or provide supply only, dependant upon client wishes.
