Printing onto Art Paper
Rather than printing onto traditional photographic paper, we can produce your image onto artist's watercolour paper, giving your portrait a soft, velvety look. The edges are generally hand-ripped to show off the beautiful texture of the paper.
Final image is re-photographed onto Polaroid film then transferred to art paper. Giving an unique textured finish on watercolour paper. Often pieces of the image don't transfer smoothly. This is part of the process and the uniqueness that can never be reproduced exactly the same.
Instead of having a smooth, photographic look to your portrait, we can turn them into moody masterpieces by adding 'grain' to the image.
Adding mood and used to emphasise the main part of the image, eg the face, the rest of the image is darkened.
Printing onto Canvas
Using the highest quality inks and canvas, our products are Fine Art Certified and guaranteed. All prints come with a 75 year replacement warranty. The canvas is stretched onto a thick frame, sprayed with several layers of lacquer for environmental protection, then finished with a stylish box frame, creating a shadow detail.
Photographs can be turned into a variety of tones. Sepia (brown), blue, red, violet, green, orange, etc. This technique can be put to great effect by having a set of four images hung together, each with a different tone. Creating even more impact is exactly the same image used four times.
This is where we reduce the depth of colour of the image. This is ideal for adding to softer styles of images.
The main part of the image is Black & White and selected areas are coloured. This can be done to eyes, lips, bouquets, etc.
