LIMITED EDITION ART BUYER & COLLECTOR INFORMATION

Ice Princess Wild Horse Handmade B&W Silver Gelatin Fine Art by Tim Layton

Purchasing artwork is a personal experience and I take a lot of pride in creating high-quality artwork that you can enjoy for the rest of your life.

The longevity of analog handmade silver-gelatin-based prints depends on the photographic medium itself, the chemical processing, and the subsequent storing and display conditions. Tim carefully creates your new wild horse artwork following time-proven museum archival standards to ensure your new artwork will last a lifetime.

Black-and-white analog materials have a number of advantages over modern digital/ink-jet media.

Learn how Tim Layton’s Wild Horse Handmade Fine Art silver gelatin prints are made in the darkroom one at a time by hand.

Based on history, we know that properly processed and stored black-and-white photographic prints have a life expectancy of at least 150 years and under optimum conditions, experts believe the artwork could exceed several hundreds of years before showing any significant signs of deterioration.

All of my limited edition wild horse fine art analog silver gelatin prints are created with world-class materials and I follow time-proven very strict archival standards to ensure your artwork will last a lifetime.

I take the permanence of your new artwork very seriously and that is why I personally execute every step of the process myself and do not outsource any aspect of my workflow.

Silver gelatin prints have been around since the 19th century and they are the only type of fine art print that has this proven record of archival permanence. All other claims are of permanence are simply claims with no way of proving them.

When it comes to museum quality and conservation, fiber-based silver gelatin prints are the only type of prints recognized as archival by professional curators and museums. The fiber paper and mounting materials that I use for my limited edition prints are guaranteed to be acid and lignin-free and without optical brightening agents.

Achieving museum-quality standards is much more than just using the right photographic paper.

I follow the same time-proven processing and archival methods as Ansel Adams and Edward Weston to ensure each limited edition print meets this very strict criterion.

Your new print is mounted on a 100% cotton, acid, and lignin-free mounting board with a window mat that is hinge-taped using archival linen tape. I title, date, and sign the window mat to complete your artwork. It is ready to display when you receive it.

To help resist environmental hazards associated with displaying your new artwork, a UV protective glass or plexiglass glazing should be used, often referred to as museum glass. If you are unsure, consult your local professional frame shop or contact me and I am happy to help.

If you choose to store your prints versus displaying them, maintaining relative humidity between 30% and 50% is advisable and room temperature should not exceed 85F/29C.

I certify all of my limited edition fine art prints are masterfully handmade by me in my darkroom and no part of the process is outsourced to any other party.
