Printing A Photo On Acrylic Skin

Photo of a bicycle printed on fiber paste medium acrylic skin

I liked the idea of printing a photograph on a substrate other than photo paper.  So I printed this image of a bicycle on acrylic ‘skin’ using Golden Acrylic Fiber Paste Medium and my Epson printer.

To create the ‘skin’ I applied fiber paste on a plastic bag and let it dry for twenty-four hours.

After the fiber paste(skin) was completely dried, I prepared it for the printer with a coating of Golden White (Matte) Digital Ground.

I placed the ‘skin’ onto a letter sized copy paper (to act as a carrier) and printed the image.

Once the printed ‘skin’ was dried I coated the image with Golden Semi Gloss Gel Topcoat Medium to protect from fading over time.
