Gumoil printing - the method for producing photos in gumoil technique.

Gumoil or Gumoil printing is the method for producing photos with gum, chromium salts and oil paints. It's painstaking and very expressive photographic method that combines unique author's point and documentary photography. Through the use of materials for art works - cotton paper and oil paints, archival photos have unique properties that are comparable to paintings on canvas. Nevertheless, Gumoil print is the alternative photographic process. Print photos in Gumoil technique requires a positive image printed on the film. Such paintings erase time. The work that the photographer spends on getting the end result gives the picture special properties. A Silver Thread – Lynn Bailey. Had a thoroughly exhausting day at the Devon Guild of Craftsmen (Thursday 23rd June).

A Silver Thread – Lynn Bailey

It’s fascinating being part of the selection committee and I always learn an awful lot from the other craft specialists. It is exhausting because it tends to be a very long day and we all feel very responsible about how we select the pieces that are going to go in the exhibition and what isn’t. There’s strict criteria and we have to justify every decision. Today we were selecting for the summer show which is has it’s launch on Friday 1st July 6-8pm. The title for the show is A Silver Thread and it is to celebrate the Devon Guild having been at the Riverside Mill in Bovey Tracey for 25 years. It seemed even more of the member’s pulled the stops out for this summers’ exhibition this year. As a committee member, I had to leave the room when my pieces were being discussed, and I was very grateful not to be left waiting outside too long before being called in to hear the good news.

What is a fine art giclee print? Process and techniques explained

Giclee and archival quality prints explained I have been using the Epson R2400 for 7 years and have found it a very reliable and robust printer. For artists and photographers wishing to reproduce their work up to A3+ size the Epson Stylus Photo series are an economical and not too bulky solution. Alas the Epson R2400 is no longer made - (I was lucky to find a used one in good condition on Ebay last year) but I would recommend the latest in this line of giclee printers - the Epson Stylus Photo R3000 for anyone starting out with reproduction prints.

Learning how to price art prints is a significant challenge for visual artists. The advantage of Giclee printers is that they are capable of reproducing artwork and photographs on a wide range of surfaces including vinyl, canvas, and last but not least of course various weights and textures of paper and card.
