Moab Slickrock Metallic Pearl & Slickrock Metallic Silver Special Papers

Moab Slickrock Metallic Pearl and Silver special papers — AuthenticPhoto.com

Slickrock Metallic Pearl is a special paper with a shiny pearly surface. Authentic uses it in particular in combination with a Diasec glossy.

The pearly surface offers a dynamic iridescent finish whose appearance changes according to the angle of incidence of the light source and the interference generated in the wavelengths.
The maximum dimensions are 150 x 300 cm.

Slickrock Metallic Silver is a paper with a metallic look. Authentic uses it in particular in combination with a Diasec glossy.

Color variations occur depending on the viewing angle and the angle at which the light enters. This results in a Kinechromatic Art effect that can best be compared to the metallic shine of car paints.
The max. dimensions are 110 x 300 cm.

Adding a White Border

You can add a white border to your image during the Online ordering process.

The white border will be added to your image size. Nothing will be cut away from your original image.

By adding a white border, your print can also be framed with a "passe-partout" without cutting off details of the image.

You can choose from the following widths: 2, 3, 5, 8, 10, 12 et 15 cm.

Please note that adding a border cannot exceed the maximum print size.

Glossy Versions

Diasec À La Carte Glossy available in 3 versions — AuthenticPhoto.com

The Plexi/Plexi Glossy versions (front and back) are our most popular Diasec, certainly because of the free polishing of the sides. Glossy sides give a shiny glamour effect to your Diasec. With Plexi/Plexi you have the same tension on the front and back and this is an advantage for the flatness of your Diasec up to the four extreme corners.

The Plexi/Dibond Glossy versions are mainly used for presentation in Floater Frame frames.  

A Black Plexi at the back gives you the benefits of the free polished sides, but you also get the luxury aspect of the visual black border on the side, and a completely black back. This makes your Diasec an even better art product.
