Anodized Art

I'm experimenting with images printed on aluminum. I use sketches from the Tuesday night life drawing group as reference to make vector art versions of the drawing in Adobe Illustrator, then import the vector art into Photoshop CC to add various effects and background textures. The MetalPrint process should result in vibrant colors, although I'm waiting for a test print to see the results.

I’m also collaborating with a artist/jeweler/metallurgist to explore the possibilities of adding special metal enhancements, such as sterling silver, to the aluminum surface.
