New Giclee prints
New Giclee prints!!

I have made the reproductions of the thangka of Vajrayogini, Vajrakilaya and Guru Dorje Drolo so far and I am very satified with these reproductions.

Unfortunately it is impossible to reproduce the polished gold part but even very tiny details and fine brush stroke are visible.

The following images are the printed images of Vajrakilaya reproduction.


We can even see the texture of the canvas of original thangka.

And this time I have made the reproductions of 2 more thangkas.  Guru Padmasambhava and Amitayus.

To reproduce the tiny details and fine lines of a thangka, we need an image of very high quality and the color adjustment for actual print is one of the most important and difficult part.

We bring the color of the prints as close as possible to the color of the original painting by repeating many of test prints and color adjustment.

The recognition of our eyes are very unreliable.
It is asily effected by other colors in the same paint.

Our eyes(or brain) recognize the color very differently by the contrast with the other colors beside.

The condition of the light is also very important.  If it's indoor, then  we must consider the color or type of illumination.
Or if it is outdoor, the light of the sun also changes very much depend on the time.

Sometimes we see a color of the print is lighter than the original indoor, but then when we check them outdoor it can be opposit.
I'm not sure but maybe it happens because of the defference of the pigments I use to paint thangkas.

I'm very happy with the result of the reproductions this time again.
And I am particularly happy to be able to produce the reproduction of the thangka of this Padmasambhava.
This thangka brought me wonderful news and also good connections with many nice people.
