Giclées are made using a superior method of printing to reproduce an original work. High resolution inkjet printers are employed in the process, and they yield a finely detailed and accurate copy of the original. Giclées are printed on 310g Cold Press Bright White watercolor paper, which is made from 100% cotton fiber, is water-resistant, and is both acid and lignin free.
Gold leafed clouds and other elements of giclées are reproduced in a rich gold ink. The gold is a beautiful even tone. It does not reproduce the reflective, metallic quality of the 24k gold leaf on the original paintings. For those who want gold leaf applied to their giclée so that it “reflects” the quality of the original contact me about the additional cost.
