Printing on Shiny Surfaces

Ct Publishing invited me to do a short video highlighting one of the techniques in my book- Digital Fiber Art: Combine Photos and Fabric - Create Your Own Mixed-Media Masterpiece. (see side bar)
big camera pointing at me- nervous??
I choose to focus on shiny substrates that you can add or use in media mixed work.
Photographs just gleam when printed on these!
video link is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kiBkBrS-H6E   Just click!
In order to print on these surface you need to use a digital ground. This prepares the surface to allow the inkjet ink to 'stick' and become permanent and clear.

I use Clear InkAid type ll for this- link here
