Difference between Art Prints and Original 3-D Collages
What they have in common
- Well, they are obviously the same collage design!
- Both are printed using archival, pigmented ink on archival paper, rated to last 120-200 years without fading.
- Both will have Catherine’s signature and the collage title hand-written underneath the collage.
How are they different
- Large 3-D’s – almost every collage element is individually hand cut and the white edges hand inked. Each element is then dimensionalized one piece at a time using either silicone or foam core. The Large 3-D’s have much more 3-dimensional detail than the Small 3-D’s.
- Small 3-D’s – the individual collage elements are grouped together so that fewer individual images are hand cut and raised 3-D, while still giving it the overall dimensional look of the Large 3-D. The white edges are also hand inked and raised in groupings using either silicone or foam core.
- Many images on both the Large and Small 3-D’s are hand embellished with ink, acrylics and microscopic glitter, making them “pop” off the page.

- Medium Art Prints highlight the bike by itself, with a white background, and includes an archival mat.
- Large Art Prints includes both the bike and the background, while capturing the dimensional shadows of the original 3-D mixed media collage, giving it a similar look to the original artwork. Large art prints are not matted, although white space around the image creates the illusion of a mat, allowing you to cost effectively frame your new print without a mat and in a standard size frame.
