The Wanderer Print: 1st State Description
I’ve combined hand-laid silver leaf and hand-mixed carbon-black inks with in-house digital printmaking in this gleaming, limited edition print titled The Wanderer: 1st State.
This was one of the first prints I made with the Amish Inkjet. So this print was the beginning of a creative adventure. Appropriately, the subject is a landscape-along-the-way. Something related to what it’s like to walk down a highway, where the median could be anywhere and the scale is all wrong for walking, but the possibilities are huge.
The reflective silver image area of this print measures 6″ by 8″ and the outside dimensions of the 100 percent cotton rag paper are 8″ by 10″. It’s the perfect size for looking at up close.
The hand-prepared paper and hand-applied leaf mean that there are small differences between the 15 prints in this edition that make each one unique.
I’ve used archival materials throughout this museum quality fine art print. Since the metal in the silver leaf is aluminum, there’s no worry about this tarnishing.
