All the Pieces Below Were Created Using the Sepia Technique
sepia technique uses hair that has been finely cut and then is used as
paint to create a picture. It can be layered for dimensional
effects and sort of "sculpted" to create unique designs.
I like to use the different hair
shades to create depth and dimension in the pieces. The mother
of pearl background is sometimes tinted to provide contrast.
Each piece is unique and made to the client's specifications.
If the hair is tinted in some cases
it was provided to me that way. It is how that feature started.
If the client prefers tinted hair I will do that as part of my
Most any design can be created
using the sepia technique and it uses hair of any
length. Even very short hair can be used as it is cut up very fine.
