What is included with a
Possum Portrait?

A​ Possum Portrait comes mounted in a museum-grade mat board ready to be framed. Its dimension is A3 (30 x 42cm).

In addition to the physical drawing,

parents receive a digital, high-resolution scan of their portrait. This may be used for a variety of purposes, such as having memoriam cards made. You can also have the image printed onto a backing (eg. canvas), and present it as a gift to bereaved relatives such as grandparents.

The physical portrait is sent in the mail.

It is therefore crucial that you give us your full and correct postal address.

Timeframes for the completion of a portrait vary widely. The time needed to complete a portrait will depend on

  • how much consultation you require with regard to the design of your portrait and how quickly you respond to our ideas and suggestions

  • the volume of concurrent applications

  • the complexity of your portrait (portraits featuring both child and parent take longer)

Have a question in the meantime?

Portrait applications will open on 1st January 2022. The lag between donations being accepted and portrait applications opening is to ensure we are able to raise the seed funding required to kick off the project!

If you have any queries at all about the application process, please get in touch and we will happily answer all your questions.
