Metallic Prints

My latest art purchase was my first time ordering metallic prints. For those of you who haven’t tried this printing style – I urge you to give it a go. I was surprised to see that, while my print actually had a strong metallic sheen when I took it out of the wrapping,  once I framed it – the shine became very subtle.  It’s almost undetectable when flat… so that it slightly enhances the print without overpowering it.

The background shapes seem softer while keeping the details sharp – the colors are deep and rich.

All in all – I’m pleasantly surprised!
