Wild Things Reproductions
(Updated imagery for 2017 coming soon!)
In addition to art cards and press prints, the images below are also available in archival quality Alupanel or Acrylic*. With their batten hanging system, these unique formats allow the reproduction to "float" 1/2" inch from the wall.
*Alupanel and Acrylic Reproductions
Starting with a high-resolution professional photo capture of the painting, the image is printed to a polyester film with a resin-coated backer. This resulting image is of the richest colour and quality available today.
Acrylic: The print is then adhered to a 4.5mm acrylic panel, which absorbs light and enhances the image in a way that glass cannot- simply stunning!
Alupanel: The same print is used but is instead coated with a 10mm high gloss laminate before it is adhered to the Alupanel. The result is a clean, sophisticated look.
* It is important to note that both the acrylic and Alupanel reproduction processes are labour-intensive and require attention to detail by real people in every step of the process. They are not "machine-made" products.
ALUPANEL® aluminium composite sheet consists of a polyethylene core sandwiched between two 0.3mm aluminium skins. With all the benefits of aluminium composite, ALUPANEL® combines durability with flexibility.
Particularly suited to high wear environments, this formable and dual-sided sheet has one satin finish surface and the other in 75% gloss.

A micro fibre cloth used gently on the surface of both Acrylic and Alupanel will remove most fingerprints. If more cleaning is necessary, please use water and a mild dish soap; glass cleaners may scratch the surface of your reproduction.
