The mat board is ready for printing with its coats of acrylic paint, adhesive size, gold leaf, and finally a coat of InkAid on it.Here it is coming out of the front port of the Epson R2400 printer – looking good. And here it is, looking perfect. No ‘pizza’ wheel tracks, and no smudging or smearing. All that is lacking is the final coat of protective varnish. I am going to let it dry overnight before I apply that. I was not so lucky with a second print. It had a smudge shadow on its left side, although I had run a couple of clean pieces of board through the printer before printing the image. On top of that, I inadvertently touched part of the print smearing it with my finger. However, I am delighted with the first print & will call the session a success.
Again, I am not really able to scan or photograph these prints so they look the way they appear ‘in the flesh.’ The metal leaf is just too shiny – this snapshot is about as close as I can come to show a representation of the print. Oh, the size of the print is about 4×4 inches.
