Archival pigment print with screenprinting and diamond dust
This print begins with a digital print process whereby a sophisticated inkjet printer is used to print an image using fine-grained pigment inks (rather than dye). Piezoelectric technology forces ink through microscopic holes. The ink droplets are then electrostatically steered onto the surface of the paper. The result is a high-quality, high-definition archival print.
Adhesive is applied to specific areas of the print using the screenprinting technique. Diamond dust is poured onto the print and the print is then lifted, dispersing the diamond dust over the surface so that it sticks to the adhesive areas.
