On Tuesday James Eads will be releasing his latest screenprint. This is his first exploration into the world of shimmer sand - think glitter, but better.
"The Sands of the Shimmering Sea" is a 12" x16" nine color screenprint. For the ninth layer he printed a transparent yellow color and hand brushed it with shimmer sand to give it a metallic glitter-like finish.*
Prints are hand signed and numbered in a limited edition of 46 in a one and a half inch black border.
Available Tuesday, February 21st at 4PM Pacific Time at www.jamesreadsmerch.com for $65
According to James the shimmer sand is very hard to capture, this image is a mock up. The shimmer sand coats the lighter color of the crashing waves. Prints will ship flat with a protective sleeve.
