My new flagship finish! Privately developed to my specifications with a professional lab, the end result is a glossy and vibrant style. Any light that hits the piece bounces back making it look as if it were back lit and giving a feeling of depth. It creates the same effect as my old Liquid Mounts (metallic paper face mounted to acrylic) but on a single sheet of metal allowing more flexibility with mounting options.
Ink is printed to a special sheet that is placed on top of powder coated aluminum in a high heat press. Under high pressure at 400F the inks convert to a gas that penetrates the metal where it resolidifies. With the ink imbedded into the metal the piece has a long life span.
I am therefore able to offer some unique mounting styles:
A French Cleat system on the back using screws allows left to right adjustments for perfect alignment as well as holding the piece flush to the wall. Wire available on request.
The frame is 1.25” deep.
Above: “Ship to Shore” floated in the 4” Tortoise frame. A darker version also available.
Left: “The Strength Within” floated in the 4” Medium Olive frame. Dark Olive also available.
The canvas finish is slightly different to the standard stretcher frame canvas that you may be familiar with. My finish mounts the canvas to a solid backing behind the print to avoid issues of the canvas becoming loose from changes in temperature or humidity, which gave canvas a poor reputation.
The sides are 1.5” in depth and wired for hanging. All canvas prints are open editions in all sizes.
Prints are on Luster photo paper printed at professional labs. The actual image size of a 12×18 print matted in a 16×20 mat is closer to 11×16. Otherwise a 12×18 print would only leave 1” of mat top and bottom. Matted prints also include a black border on the print so as to not hise any image behind the mat and alter the composition of the piece.
I do offer some sizes matted in black with white core and some framed with glass, though I only offer limited size options. Mat board only comes in certain sizes and I won’t ship framed pieces with glass over the 20×30 print size. Breakage is a big risk, packaging is larger and so shipping becomes too pricey. Best to buy the print and take it to a local framer.
Custom options may be available, so feel free to ask.
