What's a Gcleé?
\gee.clay \ n: In brief, a high tech inkjet print. Vibrant inks create a print on watercolor paper or canvas that rivals the original painting. The process allows an artist to provide a single print or small edition of a painting, instead of lithographing 500 prints.
From start to finish, a print takes only a few days. The archival quality of the inks, along with UV coatings provide lasting quality as great as original paints.
Gclees are available from many of Caldwell's original paintings and poster prints.
The editions are of 20 prints only. Watercolors Gcleés are usually 30" x 24".
