Is There An Age Limit On The Breastmilk?
No, you can use breastmilk that is several years old and it will still be fine to include in the artwork. The recommendations you see regarding storage times for breastmilk is applicable to when you are feeding your milk to your infant/child only.
Can I Use Frozen Breastmilk?
Yes, frozen breastmilk is perfectly fine to use. If you are not wanting to defrost a whole bag, break off a piece of frozen breastmilk roughly 6cm x 6xm and 1cm thick.
This works out to roughly 10mls.
Do You Take International Orders?
Yes I do. I have been granted an import license from the Australian department of agriculture. Further information can be found on the Order Process page, but please let me know if you need more information.
Can you back up your claims about the Breastmilk Portrait Paintings not spoiling and growing mold?
Yes. I have conducted a yeast and mold test through Symbio Laboratories. The samples came back with zero yeast or mold growth.
A copy of the report can be found here if you wish to read it.
What sort of photos can I use for the Family Portrait Paintings and Breastmilk Portrait Paintings?
Here are some tips for selecting the right photos to send in:
File size: preferably high resolution as more detail will come through into the painting. I have worked with photos as small as 40kb before and the process has still worked.
File type: all
Photo features: detailed fabrics in clothing look great in a painting.
Make sure the top of the head is not cut off, if its only slightly cut off that's fine, I can edit it.
What is the turn around time for the Family Portrait Paintings and Breastmilk Portrait Paintings?Please expect up to 2 weeks to complete the painting. This excludes shipping times.
Do you guarantee your work?

What is the process for the Breastmilk Portrait Paintings? How do I send in breastmilk?
Place an order online for your portrait and please ensure you have uploaded a photo
Please put 10mls of breastmilk into a ziplock bag.I recommend double bagging the breastmilk to protect against any possible spillage during shipping.
Please send to the following address via EXPRESS Post, advising me of the tracking number:
Gina Jones Creations
Parcel Locker 10069 69750
38 Sheridan Street
Once the order is placed and your breastmilk is received, the breastmilk will go through the preservation/treatment process.
When I have the photos and breastmilk I will start on the photo conversion and painting.
After the painting is completed and has been sealed, I will send you a photo and video of the final painting.
I allow 48hours to allow all the layers of sealants to cure. After that I will post out your lovingly gift wrapped painting.
Wont breastmilk go bad being sent in the post?
No, you are absolutely fine to send the breastmilk in the post.
How Is The Breastmilk Preserved?
Breastmilk jewelers use breastmilk preservation powders. This varies between different jewelers, and most will keep their method as a closely guarded secret.
My first painting I tried using preservation powder and the effect was very gritty, so I decided I would develop my own method. The method has been in development for a long time, and finally I have a result that doesn't spoil, does not smell, gives a smooth result and is a process I can proudly stand behind.
The process has been scientifically tested and verified by third party laboratories.
As this is a process developed by myself I have protected the Breastmilk Portrait Paintings under Intellectual Property.
Family Portrait Paintings, how do you make them and what medium do you use?
I use your precious family photo or any given photo to create the negative white space that you will see on example paintings on the website.
The paintings are created with alcohol inks, and synthetic paper.

Amazing work. Gina was very good in communicating with us making sure that we end us getting exactly what we want. She even accommodated some last minute colour palette changes. My wife is extremely happy with the end product and I couldn't be more happier. Highly recommend getting a portrait done. Now we have something to remind us of my bubbs breastfeeding days and memories to cherish a lifetime. Thank you Gina
