Watercolor paper fine art print display

I’ve got a new body of work in my studio.  It’s all about pairs, paper, and my way of seeing.

These new watercolor paper prints are on free floating rag paper.  I’ve been using a bunch of coatings to make them more durable. The process is a little elaborate since both sides of the paper need coating. I spray the coating, and it requires careful, partial coats to avoid over saturating the surface which causes bubbling.  The prints are run through a Daige Maxit glue machine with the outer edges masked off with tape and then adhered to 1/4″ plywood panels. The panels have an attached mounting block which is all built before adhering the print.  The result is what looks to be a free floating piece of torn-edge rag paper sitting 1.5 inches off the wall.

I’m not sure why I tried to pull this all together three weeks before Christmas but its all done and hanging now.  Feels risky, but good, to be making one-off pieces again.

I’ve got a couple iPhone shots to give you the idea.
