Diamond Dust Portraits
from Gowanus Print Lab and Park Slope Press
This completely unique canvas portrait makes a luxurious gift for a wedding, anniversary, or other milestone. A rare printing technique, made famous by Andy Warhol, lives on at Gowanus Print Lab. Here, we printed diamond dust portraits for Italian photographer Marco Glaviano for his exhibition showcasing vintage black-and-white photographs of iconic supermodel Cindy Crawford.
Sarah of The Paper Chronicles says:
Evoking the idea of a never-ending ticker tape parade, lavish diamond dust portraits are just what their name describes — covered in glittering diamond dust. The rare printing technique was first made famous by Andy Warhol, who used them in his prints of Marilyn Monroe. It was a stroke of brilliance — what better way to convey her magic, mystery & luxury?
Park Slope Press began offering them as part of their wedding services when one of their couples requested a fine art print of their wedding photo, recalled the press’ Katie Jones. “We suggested doing something unique such as the diamond dust process and they loved the results. “We (now) offer this service to all of the couples that we work with and have always received a fantastic response.”
What I especially love about this product is that it’s a “bridal” service anyone can indulge in — all you need is a memorable image.
The pieces are up to 7 x 9 feet in size and are covered in glittering diamond dust. Warhol utilized the material in his prints of Marilyn Monroe to connote luxury and magic. This magic can be yours with a custom Diamond Dust Portrait. Contact us about canvas sizes and pricing.
