High Gloss Metal is a very unique medium for presenting images.

The process involves infusing dye directly into a coated aluminum substrate. (It’s a dye-sublimation transfer heated onto pre-coated aluminum). The end result is a vibrant impressive print with great detail and resolution. The aluminum is fixed with an extruded aluminum frame, inset on the back, which allows for a modern way to hang and display these prints.

The photograph is then hand painted with acrylic textured gels such as, Micaceous Iron Oxide, acrylic fluid iridescent and interference paints as well as liquid inks that provide a true metallic look/sheen that will not tarnish with age. A high gloss spray varnish is then applied for longevity.

(The rain drops in this particular photograph have been improvised by being sculpted with a slow dry blending gel, giving them a raised realistic bubble to the touch).
