Why settle for your “run-of-the-mill” printed image. JTL Dazzle Images makes it unique is it’s 3 dimensional aspects; glimmering accents are brushed on to the print by hand throughout the image, then the real eye catcher, crystals (fantasy), are also hand placed artistically throughout the image, accenting a beautiful dress, jewelry, or maybe a crown.
It starts as an average digital image, then our dazzlers get to work; the image is first printed on a high quality canvas using oil based inks to give an oil painting look, and feel to it. The print is then passed through an ultra sound machine which will allow the ink to penetrate deep within the canvas fibers, then the print goes through it’s first drying phase for 24 hours at 85° F.
The print is then mounted and adhered to a thin padded piece of plywood. The mounted print then goes through a heated press to permanently seal all parts together, and then cooled for 4 hours.Once cooled, a UV coating is applied to protect the image from fading, and then driedagain for 48 hours.
The print is now ready for our artists to apply their vision and finalize this work of art.First a shimmer infused coating is applied to predetermined areas of the image, at this point the image is beginning to take on a 3 dimensional look. Once dried, then different sized crystals are adhered onto the image to predetermined areas of the image. Then another pass through the heat press will permanently adhere the crystals. A final UV protective coating is applied to the finished print. Last but not least, the print is mounted on a custom frame to make the image stand out. Several framing options are available to suit the customers’ preferences.
