In the context of her PhD, Willemijn Elkhuizen has developed an integrated approach using 3D scanning, digital image processing and 3D printing, for the reproduction of a painting’s appearance. This includes the reproduction of colour, topography and, in particular, spatially-varying gloss. More specifically, the aim was to create a perceptually matching appearance, by using a digital capturing and digital fabrication process, the latter based on a limited set of inks, namely cyan, magenta, yellow, black, white and transparent ink. Five case studies were carried out, involving several world-famous paintings, including works by Vincent van Gogh, Rembrandt van Rijn and Johannes Vermeer.
