First Portrait

First Portrait

from 25.00

After 60-some days, a chick emerges from its calcium enclosure sporting a light-colored notch on its bill known as an "egg tooth." The egg tooth is key to hatching. As a muscle at the back of the chick's head twitches and the chick's head jerks upwards, the egg tooth pierces the shell, creating a pinhead-sized hole in the eggshell that continues to grow in size as the chick jerks its head. This process is known as pipping. After a couple days of pipping--and hard work--the chick's hatch is complete. 

  • Photography on metal
  • Satin finish/minimal glare.
  • Ready to hang.
  • The 12x12-inch and 8x8-inch metal prints come with 1/8-inch rounded corners and float 1/2″ off the wall when hung
  • The 4x4-inch metal prints come with square corners and a magnetic back.

A little about the metal: The image is infused directly into specially coated sheets of aluminum, adding a magical luminescence to the image. Professional lab testing shows image stability of the metal print is two to four times that of traditional silver-based photo papers. And for those of you who live in salty, humid climates like Hawaii, I've done my own testing, too. I left a print on my covered lanai to test for corrosion. One year later and no rust or pits of any kind have appeared. In fact, cleaning the dust and salt buildup is fast and super easy--a wet rag and mild soap. Because if you're like me, you'd rather be out in nature than inside the house wielding a dust rag.
