Do giclee prints have texture?

Art is an integral part of any living space. It has the ability to transform and compliment the aesthetic of your home whilst lifting the spirits and allowing viewers to find time to reflect on their everyday lives. The power of art cannot be underestimated, and it is with the rise of giclée prints that it has become easier than ever to bring beautiful, true-to-life artwork into your home.

What is a giclee print?

Derived from the French word meaning ‘to spray’, Giclée prints use a digital process involving fine nozzles that spray thousands of dots per square inch onto a canvas. Unlike traditional colour printing that only uses four ink colours, cyan, magenta, yellow, and black, Giclée prints use a total of 12 ink colours to achieve the closest possible match to the original work of art. This process ensures that these reproductions are highly detailed, accurate, and almost indistinguishable from the artwork it is replicating with a guarantee of 100 years or more of longevity.

The only difference that can be seen in a giclée print when replicating a painting is that there is no 3D texture. That being said, the beauty of a giclée print is that the reproduction is of such high quality that each movement and brushstroke within the piece can be seen in detail. The original texture created by the artist can be immediately recognised as if the original piece were in front of your eyes. The same depth of exploration you would experience with an original painting can be witnessed with a 12 ink colour fine art print allowing you to become lost in the same dramatic build-up of colour and form.

Giclee Prints by Toni Thornton Art

Toni Thornton Art is proud to offer a range of highly textured Giclée fine art prints that are hand finished by one of the UK’s most experienced canvas framing teams. These limited edition prints were hand-selected by the artist to be reproduced as giclée prints for their highly textured nature that instantly jumps off the canvas.

To ensure each print is produced to the highest possible quality, a 400gsm fine art canvas is used to guarantee every detail, colour and, stroke is captured in its entirety. As such, there will only ever be 100 prints of each artwork within this collection that will be numbered and signed by the artist to reflect the rarity and uniqueness of each work of art.

Giclée prints have become the gold standard within the art industry, noted for their longevity, exceptional quality, and accuracy. If you are looking for artwork that will compliment your space by introducing a new and unique range of colour, texture, and movement, a giclée print from Toni Thornton Art is the perfect addition.
