A week ago, I had the privilege of working on this amazing placenta. The family purchased my whole shebang placenta package. I don't know what was going on that day but I could not for the life of me get the colors right. I'm limited to a short amount of time on making these prints, so I only allow myself 2 attempts max. I wasn't satisfied but needed to move on to processing.
The story this placenta shared was one of strength and sacrifices, after speaking with the mama who birthed it and her partner, I could tell she was a force of love and grace. This placenta was small but mighty in its yield of capsules plus the tincture and the length of that cord. WOW.
When I was done processing and putting all her items together, I was still unhappy with the print. I knew in my heart it wasn't the right colors and
I really wanted to deliver a print I would be happy with. Plus, not only did they pay for a specific service, but I could tell she really needed it.
While waiting to hear back from my clients I decided I would paint a one-of-a-kind print. I pulled out my paints, paint brushes, canvas and got to work.
Using colors that she requested mixed in with colors I felt represented her story and honored her, I created my favorite placenta print in my 9 years of processing placentas.
I had the privilege of delivering this to her and her reaction did not disappoint. In fact, it was so positive and encouraging it has me thinking about changing my approach to placenta prints and offering these canvas paintings instead.
I absolutely loved painting this and want to paint more, keep an eye out for past stamps being revamped! You might recognize your own!
No Paints or blank canvases come in contact with this or any placentas I have done in the past and never will.
