Sidewall, Aurora Ray

This is a sidewall. It was designed by Calico Wallpaper. It is dated 2014. Its medium is digital print on linen-textured vinyl.

To create the color blend, the designers developed their own dyeing method after studying a variety of techniques. Organic linen is painted or dipped in a liquid suspension of organic mineral pigments and the colors are allowed to bleed. The linen is then captured in sections with hi-res digital photography. These sections are then rejoined and enlarged to create a continuous non-repeating design.

It is credited Gift of Calico Wallpaper.
