Hand Colored Photos: Paint em and Scan em

I recently blogged about using MAC programs to alter digital images, but hand coloring black and white 35 mm pics the old-school way, using photo paints, is still the best.

 This seems to be, for me, the only real way to get the movement, and depth necessary to convey mood and drama in some types of photography.

Once the originals are painted, they can then be scanned in a high resolution and used as you would any digital image; to create cards, personalize just about anything, make decals, iron-ons, blow-up and frame or whatever else you can imagine. 

Here are some examples that will be for sale soon on our ATA Girls store envy site!
