    Re: post alternative techniques

    A carbon print is mostly gelatin, as are silver gelatin prints. So I have also wondered how a color dye kit used for retouching color (RA4) prints would work on carbon prints. I have plenty of both so "one of these days" when I have lots of time on my hands I'll check it out (or better yet, get a student to try it!)

    Just thinking out loud -- what if the coloring was applied to the carbon print straight out of the wash - when the gelatin is still soft and might absorb the dyes easier? One actually would have a large window of times to apply the dyes as the gelatin takes many hours to dry and start to harden.

    Well done, Sly! I will be platinum printing tonight...if I can get my behind out of the chair! But I think I'll leave the coloring to the more talented like you!

    I think I will try some colour on top of my terrible bubbly carbons - can't hurt!

    I'm glad you like the peppers - I was surprised at the metallic sheen myself.

    mdm - I'm glad you saw the image at Hand+Eye. Thanks for mentioning it. Lots of though- provoking work there. My image is not LF, but it ia alt - gum over cyanotype.

    Tri & Jim,

    Yeah sometimes i feel like Hanzel and Gretel (sp?) and I got pushed into a big wood stove with the daguerreotype process. I fell in love with the elusive quality of these mirrors but really had no idea of how high maintenance it is.

    Jim I still have reference note from you about modifying and building cameras from old parts. Ultimately I took your advice with the Mg Kodak and made a 11 x 14 field with 9 inch boards.


    thx

    Was this the print you were referring too a while back? This looked to me like it had a soft texture of watercolour paper underlying the image.

    Either way, it's an absolutely beautiful result!
