Whilst surfing the vast electronic ether we call the web this evening, I
came across information about a service that allows one to produce an
oil-on-canvas reproduction from a photograph (or a digital image, since
this service provides for the scanning of the photograph) using
UV-resistant, oil-pigmented inks (they claim are neutral and
I am interested to hear from anyone who has yet heard of this process,
and what prospects you all might give such a method.
Check the details here...
Be advised that this service is connected to a network (read "pyramid")
sales scheme, albeit the most unique scheme I've probably ever read
about. I'm curious enough about this reproduction method to cough up
the $145 they're asking for a 16"x20" print, especially since it
includes the stretching and framing of the canvas on a basic, mountable
box frame. I would easily be paying this much for an Iris reproduction,
which wouldn't be as archiveable, and that wouldn't include a frame!
Looking forward to your impressions!
