The Creation Process
When we receive your image we analyze it and discover every tiny little detail that is unique for your personal sonogram image.
What are the characteristics of your baby? Maybe the shape of a perky little nose, a waving hand or bouncing feet. The outline defines the propoprtions and shape to paint.
Layers of paint
Multiple layers of paint is how the different shades of grey appear, only using black as a color. After each layer, we patiently wait for it to dry, before it is time for the next one. As a final touch, the details will be enhanced with white to make it pop!
Letter by letter
Precision and accuracy. There is no room for mistakes when hand-printing the text. If something goes wrong, the whole painting needs to be redone. Don’t push the stamp too hard or too loose. Place the stamp perfectly aligned next to the previous letter, with the exact same spacing. It has to be just perfect.
Your painting will not turn dirt yellow after one year hanging on your wall because we choose our materials with the outermost care. The paper is 100% cotton, naturally white, acid free and made entirely without bleaching agents, for optimal conservation for a lifetime.
To preserve your keepsake safely during transport, the artwork will be carefully stored in a custom made box, hand-crafted in Stockholm, by the prominent manufacturer Norrmalms Kartongfabrik.
