As a result of the current advances in inkjet colour management and halftoning the significant impact of inkjet printing has meant that the artist can now take for granted high-quality colour and resolution in their printed images. Now that the digital printing machine has reached a level where it is seemingly little more than a highly sophisticated image reproduction device, with little or no possibility for repair or modification, artists are beginning to question what next? What if inkjet printers can be modified or adapted to create something different? This research is motivated by painting and rendering programmes and the need to leverage meaningful interaction between the software, the colour printed output, viscous properties of the medium, that works towards the development of a digitally applied surface topology or as 2.5D Printing.
