CHROMALUXE ALUMINUM HD GLOSS
For the style of my work, this is almost always my recommended finish as it truly sets apart the artwork from any other medium. ChromaLuxe is an aluminum substrate with a specialized coating, that is considered an archival museum quality Fine Art Print. The outcome is vibrant, modern, elegant with an amazing depth of colour. The process is called sublimation, where dyes are infused directly "into" (rather than "onto") the specially coated aluminum sheet, providing colours that are unmatched in depth and clarity. There are reflections that do not so much block the image as they do on glass in front of an artwork, but rather they appear to exist behind the surface adding another element to the experience of the piece. The impact that this medium has is incredible! People's reactions to this medium are "wow"!
For lighting, It is most ideal to have gallery style lighting from above.
ChromaLuxe is resistant to fading, scratches, stains, flames and water and is easy to clean with a sunglass cloth.
I offer ChromaLuxe Fine Art Prints in sizes up to 96"x48.

Using the Epson inkset, ChromaLuxe achieved a Wilhelm Display Permanence Rating of 65 years. The rating is equal to the number of years before any noticeable fading and/or changes in color balance occur at a high level of light. Under normal lighting conditions, the manufacturers expect ChromaLuxe metal prints to last more than 100 years.
ALUMINUM SILVER FINISH
The Aluminum "Silver" Finish is used only for specific artworks, as it is part of the art itself. Rather than a white base, the aluminum itself shows through the highlights creating a very unique effect. It will show through some of the silver aluminum base, which becomes part of the artwork design. The aluminum surface is perfectly smooth, not 'brushed' aluminum and has a glossy finish.
Archival Quality Medium
Some of the artworks that use this medium are:
ALUMINUM MATTE FINISH
Matte finish is perfect for when there are just too many windows or light sources where the aluminum print is to be hung, so that it's impossible to view from any position without reflections interfering with your appreciation of the image. Matte finish will diminish any reflections and has a more soft, and less vibrant finish. The matte finish has a subtle texture and is elegant, modern and still has an amazing impact on the viewer without the gloss.
Archival Quality Medium
By default all artworks are unframed and do not need to be framed. They are ready to mount on the wall and will appear to "float" off the wall about 3/4". Framing is optional and can add another dimension of beauty and depth to the artwork. If framing is desired, it can be done at time of purchase and alternatively the artwork can be custom framed after you receive it. I offer a gallery quality aluminum float style frame for sizes up to 72x40. Please inquire.
