Thought of the Day 2010 #100 - Metallic Paper Printing

 I ordered some of my artsy fartsy photo collages on Endura Metallic paper...and I LOVE IT on most of the selections! The metallic sheen adds a depth that you just don't have in regular printing. The lighter colors POP from the paper and moving your eyes across the image gives some of the prints a 3D appeal. There are a few of the works that didn't print well on the metallic paper, primarily those with really low contrast. I think if I upped the contrast and lightened some of the image, they could still shine in this style of print.
I'll be listing some of the prints at my Etsy site:, if'n you're interested.
