Angles of lights on artwork
In addition to the light bulbs you choose to directly light your artwork, the ambient lighting in your room can completely affect the overall look and tone of your artwork display as well. The soft glow of ambient lighting can be used to create drama and heighten the intensity of your image, pulling the viewer closer to ponder and enjoy the magnificent color and detail captured in your face-mounted acrylic photo prints.
Lik-inspired museum hanging and finishing
ArtisanHD offers an ample variety of hanging and finishing options for you to select from when purchasing your face-mounted acrylic prints, which will also play an important role in the display of your acrylic work of art as well.
For instance, you could choose to add a Museum Back, which gives your acrylic face-mounted print the appearance of “simply floating off your wall”. Or select our 1-inch stainless steel standoff mounting system, which provides “clearance” to allow light to fall between your image and your wall, to add a “glowing” or “backlit” effect to your acrylic print artwork display.
Wall color and space
And finally, the actual wall colour behind your acrylic print can have a dramatic impact as well. Displaying your print on a wall colour that is in stark contrast (either darker or lighter) than the colours included within your acrylic print artwork can add even more drama or ‘POP’ to the final presentation of your artwork display.
