1. A method of forming a textured effect on a substrate, the method comprising the steps of:
a) creating a data file of an image to be formed as the textured effect on the substrate, the data file comprising at least one print image and a number of times specified for printing of the at least one print image;
b) preparing the data file for surface deposition by a printer;
c) providing the substrate on the printer;
d) printing, with the printer, the at least one print image in the data file on the substrate using a clear ink to form a layer of ink;
e) UV curing, with the printer, the layer of ink; and
f) repeating steps (d) and (e) for every print image of the at least one print image for the number of times specified in the data file so that the image formed as the textured effect on the substrate comprises a plurality of layers of printed and UV cured clear ink, wherein the substrate comprises glass.
