DECORATIVE ART PANELS BY ALEX TURCO
Alex Turco Decorative Art Panels offer a stunning alternative to the more traditional options for indoor, outdoor and water applications. Panels are made of composite aluminum, pure aluminum or acrylic sheets.
Composite aluminum is a durable yet flexible material that is also used to cover entire facades of buildings. It is made of two sheets of aluminum sandwiching a solid core of extruded thermoplastic material formed in a continuous process using no glues or adhesives.
Pure Aluminum is a flat and flexible aluminum sheet; perfect for wrapping or radius applications.
Acrylic comes in either clear or opaline sheets.
Materials used are very light and workable; easy to mill, cut, bend, fold and silk-screen print. The process starts by laser printing an image on a sheet of material which is then hand processed with acrylic colors and metal pigments. Several layers of Epoxy Resin are brushed over the surface. This process makes the panels 100% waterproof and UV resistant. In addition to designs shown, it is possible to create custom artwork.

- FLAT: Simple & minimalist effect of a flat surface. Most recommended
for Minerals collection as it resembles a stone slab.
- DRIPPING: 3 different effects:
1. Brush strokes: Can see vertical lines of brush strokes.
2. Bubbles: Looks as if water was running across surface.
3. Moon Effect: Uneven surface with ripples and layers of epoxy resin.
- MINERALS: Incorporates semiprecious minerals and sand. Can customize
texture by adding any material to the epoxy resin.
