Framing Metal Art

 

Printing: Metal Art is printed on sheets of aluminum. 

1. The aluminum sheet is selected for its smooth qualities and buffed and readied for dye pigments.

2. In some pieces, Jim will arrange a mounting on thin black styrene for additional stability. 

2. A base white pigment is added first to the metal for color effect.

3. Then the art image is baked into the aluminum at about 400º bringing out a high polished look that is scratch resistant.

4. Choose a hanging location in your home or office to best show off your art.

Although your art piece will last for decades, it should not hang in direct sunlight. 

 

Framing: A museum quality framing is then mounted to the back of the print using d-rings and a finished wire connection. This framing setup using d-rings is the preferred method for hanging art in exhibitions.
