Paul Riccardi: Pastel Paintings and Fine Art Reproductions

All fine art gicleé prints are created on Canson Infinity fine art matte paper.  This is an archival, museum-grade, premium quality, 100% cotton rag fine art paper.  It has a smoothe, slightly textured surface.  This paper is acid free and offers resistance to aging by using natural minerals.   It has the purest white tone available on the market, without Optical Brightening Agents, also called OBAs.  (Optical brightening agents are artificial brighteners that deteriorate over time.)

Images are generated from high resolution digital photographs and printed with Epson professional, archival quality pigment inks.   Pigment inks excel in performance.  This paper/ink combination is given a permanency rating of 132 years when framed with UV protective glass.  As with all fine art, for best longevity, avoid displaying your fie art prints where they might be exposed to direct sunlight or near a bright window.
