The Making of a Hand Drawn, Hand Painted Empress Cachet
First a sketch is created (in this example, by Frans) using a rapidograph pen to draw the entire design. The design is drawn 60% larger than the envelopes that it is later printed on.
We then print the cachets on acid-free envelopes in very limited quantities of up to 50 cachets. Frans then meticulously Hand Paint each cachet with Airbrush and watercolor.
