Metallic Print

Photographic Collage

“The Night of the Iguana” was filmed in and around Puerto Vallarta. There is a reason this was the location.

THERE ARE IGUANAS EVERYWHERE! Small, big, and huge. Brightly hued, vivid green, dull gray, and nearly black.

They are magnificent creatures.

This “found image” collage glistens in the metallic prints on the gatorboard and metal-backed prints.

You need some iguana light.

I love iguanas.  They are magnificent rulers of the jungle’s reptiles.  Sometimes they are problematic for humans and pets.

They delighted in torturing our dog Thunder. Thunder got his revenge. I had to yank the lizard out of his mouth; his sharp scales were nasty. Thank goodness he was frightened and didn’t bite.  I released him, and he skittered across the cobblestone street.

Now I am battling an iguana determined to eat my crown of thorns plant on my upper deck. Supposedly the plant is poisonous. This guy is thriving, devouring the bright red flowers and rose-tinged green leaves.

Fine Art Paper Finishing

Unless otherwise requested, all fine art paper prints will come with a one-inch border for ease of framing.   If you don’t want a border, let me know.  The art looks beautiful without a border “floated” (placed on top) of matte board. 

There are several options with deckled edge which should be floated on a matte.  Please contact me to discuss the options.

Canvas Stretching

I print on two types of canvas, matte finish (an elegant, smooth flat finish) and gloss finish (shinier and reflective).  In general, I prefer the matte finish.  These can be thin stretched on ¾ inch stretcher bars.  They can be hung unframed or framed.  Some pieces can be gallery wrapped where the image wraps around the side.  Or the side can be white, black or a complimentary color that I usually choose to go with the artwork.  There are other options.  You can have the canvas stretched over 1.5 inch stretcher bars, a dramatic look. 

Metal Prints

The metal prints have the look of a plexiglass or acrylic print and are more economical.

The Metal Print with a Float Hanger  

The surface white Gloss Metal Prints has a white base to maximize color and contrast. Its high gloss surface provides a metallic look while preserving the white points in an image. Final product should display high level luminescence effect for seemingly superior image density and contrast.

Metal Silver Gloss

The surface has a clear metallic base providing a true metallic look. Higher gloss surface allowing a more silver appearance. Provides a maximum luminescence effect for seemingly superior image density and contrast.

I am happy to provide advice on framing and can help you with this process.  Contact me.  I love to work with my clients!
