Steven Lee Smeltzer Fish Prints are images of the artists sculptures printed on a high-quality, hand-molded watercolor paper made in Germany that is also OBA free and contains a metallic coating. It is important that the substrate you print on is OBA free to have longevity. The paper is 340 gsm ~ 100% cotton ~ natural white.
The combination of the high-end watercolor paper and a unique process using 11-color pigment inks, plus Chroma optimizer allows the paper to absorb the ink and give it a one-hundred year plus life span.
Each hand made print comes with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
Please note that hand-molded paper may have irregularities.
The term “GSM” stands for “grams per square meter.”
For example, paper with a weight of 55 gsm will be much, much lighter and thinner than paper weighing 400 gsm. The 400 gsm paper, meanwhile, will be heavy, thick, and much more durable.
OBA means ‘optical brightening agent’. OBA are unstable molecules and may turn yellow over time, which will lead to paper discoloration. Being OBA free extends the longevity of the print.
