"the process of creating custom portraits is so fun, intricate, and unique"

Each custom portrait begins with a graphite tracing of the original photo to ensure exact replication of each individual's characteristics.  From there, watercolor pigments made out of minerals and gemstones are layered one at a time to build the color and shading of the portrait.  The entire process takes anywhere from 1-6 hours (not including drying time between layers).  Upon completion of watercoloring, each portrait is matted by hand and packaged for mailing.
