printing glossy but on matte paper, a bit like UV spot?

Hello guys.

I am trying to figure out how I can print a glossy cut-out image surrounded by a matte background, a bit like UV spot. It's for an art project, and I would preferably want to be able to reproduce the effect myself at home. and I would rather not apply the gloss by hand, but make it more automatic and precise. Because I will be doing a bunch of them, and want to be able to do minor changes and not have to involve a third party constantly. I was wondering if the glossy part comes from the paper itself alone or if the ink could also be glossy, in which case my solution would be easy since I could just print my creations on a matte paper using glossy ink? The effect I am looking for is a bit like UV spot.

The ink and paper should be archival since it's for art , so please if such a thing is possible  can you suggest printers that could do the job?

Any help would be much appreciated thanks!
