It’s pretty interesting that not many people have thought about what “Shots on Stone” is trying to do right now. There have been Polaroid emulsion lifts onto wood and stone, but this is a different process.
The project, just as the name implies, involves developing prints on stone tablets for an incredibly unique and artistic way to display your imagery.
More after the jump…
The Shots on Stone Kickstarter Campaign is seeking around $4,500 (4,000 euro) to start offering these hand crafted and custom made stone ‘prints’ worldwide. Each piece is a genuine black and white analog print on stone tiles, developed by hand in a darkroom. This leads to a high quality print on what has to be one of the most solid mediums there is.
As far as incentives, you can get one of your very own images printed on stone for a contribution of ~$89, or if you would like to get an art piece for your home or office you can contribute less ($45 for one or $84 for two) and get a stone print or two featuring the work of the Shots on Stone founder.
Obviously this is not something that you would offer as a complete replacement for paper prints, albums, or even digital copies. But as an added value, for clients looking for a unique and artistic way to display their images in the home, stone prints seems to fit that bill pretty readily in my opinion. Especially if you split the print across multiple tiles like is pictured above, could make for some fun wall art arrangements.
As of this writing the Kickstarter has about 25% of its goal covered. So if you are interested in these, there is still plenty of need for contributions. Get all the details over on the Shots on Stone Kickstarter, here.
