Ashes to Portraits is a company that will take your family member' (or pet's) cremated ashes and create a timeless portrait to preserve your loved ones likeness for years to come. The process involves creating a special mix of the cremated ashes with oil paint. The artist then works from a photograph of your lost loved one and creates a one-of-a-kind portrait using the newly mixed paint.

Implications - You can see some of the creative works made by Ashes to Portraits in the gallery. The paintings are very precise and wonderfully detailed. The company says that creating a portrait of the deceased with ashes is a special way that can help deal with feelings relating to grief and sadness.
