    it is very simple - I made "tea" aka boiling water on the bark and let it stand there to cool

    If you (or anyone else) wants to go the heavy-duty, industrial-strength route, soaking pulverized oak galls (the spheroidal "oak apples" that are the tree's reaction to insect attack) will give you a generous concentration of gallic acid along with miscellaneous other tannins.

    For what it is worth, gallic acid is trihydroxybenzene, a first cousin to both catechol and hydroquinone, and like them can be used as a silver halide developer.

    ..and now I have tried Walnut. Walnut bark in a bottle - then boiling water on it and let it soak for a long time (mine soaked for at least two days, but I don't know whether that is nessecary..)

    Old cyanotype soaked for about 10 min.

    I should maybe put this in the nude section, but I prefer to put it here (have had some really degrading comments in the other thread)

    I'll put it as an attachment so

    1: you can decide if you want to see it larger..
    2: I can remove it again...

    "Alternative" in the sense of an alternative toning process...

    I made as a 20x24" print - then added bleach/developer/fix on the paper without rinsing between the processes. (used a sponge and a brush).
    This made a "war" breake out - the chemistries fought or so it seemed, and this came out....

    Not sure if this counts as "alternative," but...

    I took a Polaroid type 54 positive I shot at Yosemite and sandwiched it with an old 9x12cm blank negative that I found in an old German holder. I simply fixed the negative to clear it without development, leaving it scratched, mottled and dusty. The combination gives the image a bit of a worn, vintage look.

    I shot this negative on Friday and unbeknown to me the family appearing in the lower right- hand corner appeared in the frame. The older mother is taking a point-n-shot apparently of the duck while the younger mother and infant look on. I like the addition!

    I still have about 20mL left of 300mL of senstizer that I mixed about 3 months ago and decided to make a Vandyke print this morning before the rain starts again tomorrow.
