LIMITED EDITION MEDIUMS
Limited Edition Premium Canvas Giclée are printed directly onto museum-quality canvas material using high-quality archival inks in a Lustre Surface (near matte finish) format and hand completed with details like impasto texture, gold or copper leafing, fine details in the irises of the eyes and an earth friendly, water based UV resistant glaze to top it off. All this simply means that you can feel certain that if you take care of your artwork it will take care of your artistic soul; things like keeping your art out of direct sunlight, giving it a nice, chemical free dusting every now and again and avoiding elements like high humidity, snow, rain and wind will help your newly acquired artwork last a really long time. Seriously, don't make people fight over this in your will!
Premium Archival Inks produce images with smooth tones and rich colors on a select few Fine Art Papers that make up my offerings of Limited Edition Watercolor Giclée, the word "archival" is your friend and an art industry term indicating 100+ years of longevity with reasonable care. Once again, I'm simply reminding you that with some basic do's and do not's of care your new art will nourish your artistic spirit; things like keeping your artwork out of direct sunlight, giving it a gentle, chemical free dusting every now and again and avoiding elements like high humidity, snow, rain and wind will help your newly acquired artwork last a really long time. Honest to goodness, don't make people sit in a stuffy conference room to battle over this in your last will and testament!
Encaustic, meaning “to burn in or fuse”, is an ancient painting medium first practiced by Greek artists as far back as the 5th century B.C. and is frequently, although not exclusively, applied to wooden panels. Encaustic is also one of the oldest known pigment binders, combining molten beeswax with dry pigment and tree resin (often still hanging on to a few stray elephant hairs, although I work super hard to pluck all of those out before combining the resin with the beeswax!). My Encaustic painting is accomplished in lush, translucent layers, an incredibly luminous quality not found in any other medium. In 1 to 3 years, once your Encaustic is fully cured into its final hard, durable surface, it can be re-buffed to a satin gloss, or left matte. A few important notes for the longevity of your Encaustic Artwork; let's remember to keep that panel out of a hot vehicle with the windows rolled up - no matter how much Damar Resin that I may add to my (and consequently your) gorgeous beeswax it's not going to stand up to the melting temperatures that a car quickly reaches (don't make me mention how hot your dog feels in there!!!). "Bloom" is a light haze that may appear on the surface of the painting in the first year the beeswax is curing, it's perfectly normal, natural and easily dispelled - a gentle buffing, quarterly, will discourage bloom and keep the dust at bay. No glass is ever needed to cover your Encaustic but never scratch the surface of your art. Boom! Your ancestors' ancestors are going to be admiring this piece.$300 & up
Reactive Printing - yeah baby! Reactive Printing, or RP, is a permanent way of printing on natural fabrics by creating chemical reactions at a cellular level in fibers. This is a multi-step process that involves pretreating natural fabrics to prepare them for Reactive Ink; by printing digitally with special inks, steaming the fabric to initiate the reaction, and finally washing out excess ink and softening the fabric for use. While it’s not the easiest way to print fabric, RP gives the best results every time in terms of incredible color, unbelieveable softness, usability and durability. And! It's a closed loop system that makes it super efficient and allows for a very clean foot print that meets all leading ecological requirements such as Oeko-Tex standard 100 and GOTS, win-win! You get the enviable choice of wearing your Limited Edition Luxe Scarf or displaying it in a prominent location gently sheltered from direct sunlight (or doing both). Imagine passing this gift from one generation to the next!$180 & up
