- Changing the color of things

- Changing the size and shapes of people or things
Mixed-Media paintings are more limited. They can only:
- Remove items or subjects from the foreground or background
- Change colors
Painting size is small so we recommend not to put too many person in it, if you still want that, simply don't select subjects numbers and send your order out, our artists will quote the price base on your picture.
In order to provide a positive experience and details at a level most customers expect, the size has to be big enough for the artist to add the details for 3 people. It's certainly *possible* but it may not look as detailed as you might want and to avoid that issue we do not accept those orders as most artists will not be willing to take them.
Turnaround times generally range from 5-15 days. The specific turnaround time will vary based on your requirements, your artwork size, and the current level of demand we have in our network. Expedited shipping ranges from 3-5 business days, and Economy Saver shipping can take up to 4 weeks for transit. With expedited shipping, most orders are at your door around 3 weeks from ordering, and with economy saver shipping it can take 4-6 weeks. Revision requests and drying time can add to turnaround times. If you need the painting by a specific date, we offer guaranteed delivery deadlines by selecting a delivery deadline date when you configure your painting. Once your order is submitted and we have collected responses from actual artists, you will be able to see their quoted turnaround times based on your order requirements.
If you select the framed option, you will be able to work with the artist to select a matching frame. Because frame options vary based on the artist that accepts your order, you will not be able to see the choices until an artist is matched. Since artists order these from framing shops, generally any moulding design can be ordered for you.
Because Instapainting.com is a platform for independent artists and studios worldwide, we can always find artists who can ship to your country. Just enter your address at checkout! *Please note because Instapainting.com is a United States company, certain sanctioned countries cannot use our platform (these include, but are not limited to, North Korea, Iran, Sudan, Syria, and more)
Instapainting.com is a platform for independent artists and studios, so we do not employ any artists in any specific locations. Artists can register and use our platform from anywhere in the world, as long as they submit portfolio samples that pass our rigourous standards. We have active artists ranging from the United States to Australia, and in many places in between. When you place an order, we look at your requirements and match you with interested artists who will ultimately paint and ship from their home or studio and ship directly to you. Feel free to browse our gallery or our featured artists page to find artists and see their biographies and locations. Normally we will find artists for you, but if you see any artists on our platform that you like, you can request quotations from them on their profile page.
By default, if no instructions are provided, the artist will paint your photo exactly as it is. If the photo does not fit into the size you ordered, they will edit the photo and ask for your approval before starting. If you have complex or non-standard instructions, the artist may provide a photoshop mockup for you to approve so that there are no suprises with the sizes and positions of things. For certain requests such as making a painting in the style of another artwork, the artist cannot do a preview, but we do offer select artistic styles ranging from Picasso to Roy Lichtenstein which you can instantly preview. To try that out, just upload a photo when you configure an item and you will be able to select and preview those styles.
Yes! Just upload the background photo as a second photo when configuring your item, and write in the instructions box to use the file as the background. You can also describe a color or tone in the instructions box for your artist to use if you do not have a specific background photo. You can visit our gallery to view some examples of background replacement paintings.
Just write in the instructions box what people or things you want the artist to remove. If you would like to add something to the photo, just upload the additional photo of that person or thing and ask the artist to add it in. It's that simple! You can visit our gallery to view some examples of adding things to paintings and removing things from paintings.
Just write in the instructions box what you want to change. For example, if someone is frowning, you can ask the artist to paint them with a smile! You can visit our gallery to view some examples of changing things in paintings.
This is a popular request, and of course we have the best artists who specialize in these. To request this type of painting, just upload the photo of the artwork you want to recreate, and then upload headshots of yourself or your subjects in the same poses and positions. Then write in the instructions box where to paint each person. And it doesn't have to be other paintings or artwork. You can paint people into other photos as well! You can visit our gallery to view some examples of re-facing paintings.
When you submit an order through Instapainting it gets put in front of hundreds of artists in our network of independent artists that look at your order details so that we can select the one that specializes in your requirements.
