Hi, I am Welles Tan, welcome to my blog. I had been a caricaturist for events and parties since 1990. Shadow cutting, also called Silhouette Cutting, Portrait Silhouette Cutting, or Profile Cutting. It is an art that using scissors to cut out a shape of a person’s side profile using dark color paper. Usually people will frame it like a photo, put on the desk as a decoration for memories.
