Hi Scott

My interest in this process is one of being able to mount a very large project I have been working on where I solarize crushed metal objects. My print sizes will be 28" x 42". the prints will be trimmed to rebate and floated on the aluminum and framed with welded steel. Kinda like keeping everything in the metalic look.
As well I have contiually heard that mounting to aluminum is the ultimate in smoothness, and stability, its archival aspects I'm not sure of and I will research before I proceed.
Normally with all our work for prints over 16x20 we use rag board as a mounting subsrate
