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 White Edges

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: 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 10 and 12 cm.

Please note that adding edges cannot exceed the maximum print size.

Satin Versions

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

The Satin Diasec versions have no reflections and can be used in environments where there is a lot of light.
And yet they have the necessary energy to make an image live.

They are also ideal for black & white photography.

The Plexi/Plexi versions offer the beautiful combination of an energetic  satin surface at the front and a shiny free polished side.

All the satin combinations have the same advantages as the glossy versions.
