    post alternative techniques

    So many fine images in this forum.
    But I miss a thread where we can post our images, made in one or more of the fascinating "alternative" techniques that are out there...

    show us your Cyanotypes - Oil prints - Bromoils - Albumen's - Van Dyke's - Carbon prints - photo gravures or what you are currently working with.

    Please let us know what technique used (Camera's - lenses are always fine too)...

    C'mon: I dare you!

    Nice idea, I'd really like to see the alt work everyone is doing. I'll start with a carbon transfer- black/green tissue on Lana HP.

    Colin, awesome image. Since I am a carbon printer I can understand the asthetics of your image, it looks great. Are you using the B&S tissue or pouring your own? I have gotten my first successful 8x20 carbon but I messed it up when I was spotting some areas and I have to reprint it.
    Here is an image I did recently from Yosemite. I use a tissue that I pour myself. I use Black Cat India ink, a warm Ivory black, and pour a high relief tissue. The image has a great range of tonalities and I only print carbon. I have found my match!

    I pour my own, that's the fun part- coming up with these gadawful colors.
    Here's one that's blue, on purpose! Phthalocynanine blue and lamp black tissue on lana hp watercolor paper.

    Colin,

    That is a beautiful image. Are you getting much relief with your method of tissue making?

    this is an image of Kala, made with liquid emulsion on hard burned stoneware clay.
    After the image was printed, I manipulated the emulsion with hot water, and toned it.
