This is an image of a mint stem after it was split into four pieces along the long axis. Each stem piece was placed into alternating food colorings. The stem was cross-sectioned the next day to see how the different colors traveled through the plant vasculature within the node.

This micrograph is printed on archival (~100 years) Endura Metallic photo paper. This paper uses a patented combination of film and laminate layers that result in striking, three-dimensional, lasting images on an ultra-bright background.
The photos are mounted on 1/16” thick matboard to give extra support, which prevents curling and wrinkling in the frame.
The photo is finished with a Lustre Coating, which provides a sheen that visibly enhances the photo and provides superior protection. The coating protects against fingerprints and ultraviolet radiation.
Finally, the print will be signed and on the front, unless otherwise directed. The description of the print is pasted to the back of the print and I also include the description on heavy weight card stock.
