    First ArtRage painting on real canvas, 'gelled' and framed

    Do you remember my Van Gogh-like ArtRage paintings? I send one of them to a canvas printing company and let it printed on real painter's canvas: 80 x 60 cm. The quality of the canvas print is amazingly good. I had one mishap, my signature was too close to the edge of my canvas and felt off.

    I finished the printed canvas with a transparant glossy gel medium (I used Talens Amsterdam Gloss Gel Medium 094 for acrylics (www.talens.com)) with a rough pork hair paint brush. The medium gel gives the printed canvas a paintery look. Now it is very, very hard to find out whether this painting is digitally made or with traditional paint.

    I put it in a frame and it's now decorating my office wall. Soon I will show new paintings, printed and varnished on real canvas, framed.

    The specific gel mediums can be found here:

    Dear Vincent Van Briex,
    a very useful hint and demo for an absolutely impressive outcome!
    If I may ask, what was, roughly, the price for printing on canvas in such a size pls? In case You used an online order, what was the site You selected?
    Thanks a lot in advance

    I think you have a lot of us wondering how we might have this done with our paintings. Thanks for the inspiration!

    I ordered the canvas print from a local Dutch canvas printer (though one of the best in the Netherlands). Their colours and canvas material are superb. You can choose for 2 cm and 4 cm thick canvas wood frame. The price I paid was 38 euros (delivered).

    Here are the sizes and prices they offer for canvas printing:

    Jules, for the moment they have no English option nor shipment outside Holland and Belgium. I called the company to ask if they are planning a worldwide service in the near future. They will give me feedback later.

    Anyway, it's incredible to see that canvas printing gives such a realistic output of an ArtRaged painted artwork. Traditional painting for me has become now really history. ArtRage is the future.

    Thanks a lot, dear Briex! The price seems competitive and your grant on the quality is a plus!
    I had the same question than Jules. The mix of English and German I know would not be sufficient to deal in Dutch, I apologize.
    Moreover there's the issue of delivery in European countries other than Holland and Belgium, Italy in my case.
    Finally I hope Paypal payments are accepted (quite an easy and secure money transfer type).

    Warmest Regards
