KOALA PRINT DETAILS
Oh those large furry ears and big black nose – what’s not to love about the Koala print?! This little marsupial is an icon of Australia but sits laid back and humble up in the cool, sheltered shade of a gum tree. Drawn with pencil, the detailed and textured Koala print artwork is guaranteed to bring lots of smiles and imaginary cuddles to you everyday.
“It had been a while since I had added to my animal drawings when I did the Koala artwork and I had almost forgotten how much I enjoy drawing fur! The layers of pencil that went into capturing this little Koala’s grey and brown toned fur was almost meditative. Our native animals are so unusual and it was such a pleasure to draw this little guy (yep, have decided it’s a boy for me). I can’t wait to get started on my next native animal!”
Rebecca Garfield, Artist.
The artist, Rebecca Garfield, hand signs each giclée print. Print artworks are printed on archival 310gsm cotton rag paper that possesses the unique texture and warm white tone of traditional watercolour paper. UV resistant Epson UltraChrome® HD pigment inks are used to print your artwork enabling outstanding detail and precision colour that ensures your print is exactly like the original. A State of Eden wall print is a piece that will be treasured forever.
Watermark will not be printed on your artwork. The Koala print artwork is available in A4, A3 and A2 sizes. Custom framed print artworks are available to Australian customers. Frame finish options are Tasmanian Oak, White and Black (as pictured in product gallery).
State of Eden provides professional, custom framed prints to customers within Australia. At this time, framed artworks are unable to be shipped internationally. Frames are available in White, Black and Tasmanian Oak and the frame moulding for all sizes is a classic 20mm (face) x 35 – 40mm (side depth). An A3 print size is pictured for your reference in each of the frame colours. Artworks are mounted with a mat board to set your print within the frame. State of Eden’s custom made frames use plexiglass as this is a safer alternative to glass and also provides the artwork with better UV protection.
If the budget does not stretch to custom framing or you are based internationally self framing can be easy. Ready made frames to international paper sizes are available throughout Australia, Asia and Europe. For North America and Canada mat boards can be cut to the print size by your local framer and mounted in a ready made frame size of your choosing. A4 and A3 print sizes will fit in Ikea frames sold in Australia, Asia and Europe (30x40cm frame, mat opening 20x29cm and 40x50cm frame, mat opening 29x39cm). A3 print size will work with Ikea frames for North America and Canada (mat opening 11 1/2” x 15 1/4”).
More guidance on self framing can be found here.
- Keep artwork in its sleeve with backing board or rolled in mailing tube until artwork can be framed.
- Use care when handling the artwork as archival paper can be susceptible to marks if mishandled.
- Be sure all framing materials that come in contact with your artwork are acid free.
- If self framing, please use backing board or acid free paper behind your print as a protective barrier.
- Do not hang artworks in direct sunlight.
