What is Liquid Gloss?
Liquid Gloss is a resin that – due to its chemical properties – is syrupy and transparent. Your photograph or art work can be provided with Liquid Gloss using a specially developed casting process. The art work is stuck on to a 4 mm thick Dibond sandwich panel and then treated with a high gloss or matt coating. Since the resin has a naturally amplifying effect the colours and lines are enhanced, increasing their strength and beauty. Liquid Gloss is the finishing touch for every piece of art.
The special resin is extremely suitable for valuable art works because the colours are preserved as you intended them to be. Liquid Gloss is used by high-end companies and professionals in architecture, interiors, hospitality, furniture, photography and art. The dialogue with artists, photographers and designers is very important. These professionals use Liquid Gloss to arrive at new ideas and applications and through their creative input, Liquid Gloss continues renewing itself.
All Liquid Gloss works are provided with a u-profile hanging system on the back. This system allows for placing the photograph a little bit from the wall in order to create a gallery aesthetic.
How are the works mounted?
The mounted works and frames as offered are produced by our trusted partner Frame Products in Amsterdam.
The photographs are offered in two styles:
- framed works: in wooden shadowbox frames with (museum) glass
- unframed works: mounted on dibond panels with acryllic glass
Mounted photos come without an actual frame, but are printed on smooth satin paper that is attached permanently to a 2mm aluminium dibond panel with a special fixative.
The photo could additionally be finished by 3mm thick acrylic glass, matt or glossy. This excellent combination of satin paper and acrylic glass gives the photo a deep, yet crystal-clear and fresh appearance.
All mounted works are provided with a u-profile hanging system on the back. This system allows for placing the photograph a little bit from the wall in order to create a gallery aesthetic.
Mounted works are all protected from humidity and light by its UV print plus the 3mm thick acrylic glass.
What proves the authenticity of the works?
All photos are delivered with a certificate of authenticity, numbered and personally hand-signed by the photographer.
The certificate of authenticity assures you of the limitation and origin of the work. A signed edition certificate guarantees the authenticity of the artist’s signature and includes the edition’s significant details: format, date stamp and the work’s print number.
In case, the magazine in which the photograph has been published is still at hand, it will be delivered with the work.
