    Great work and great thread, will be interesting to see a variety of processes.

    This is an 8x10 Pt/Pd print on Arches.

    Re: post alternative techniques

    a hybrid print i made in the late 80s
    using decomposed/dissolved 4x5 sheets
    and other "stuff"
    from a long running series that
    combines hand made elements together
    with photographic film, technique, printing ...
    maybe 2 (at the most) prints of each image in
    the series is made, so each image is "unique"
    i'd show more, but only a few were ever scanned ...

    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!

    Jim. a said I am not a carbon printer, but I still see the asthetics of both your and Colin's image...

    Every time I see a well done carbon print, I know, I have to learn how to do it...

    By the way; I don't know whether you all know this guy...
    Look at his carbon prints... (I don't know how to make a direct link)

    Emil, no I did not know about him. His work is very interesting and his carbon work is great. Thanks for the link. As a side note to you I gave Per Volquartz a 13 hour carbon primer last Sunday and he is hooked on the process. Saw tones and texture in some of my nude work that he had never seen before. If you need any info on carbon drop me a PM.

    Re: post alternative techniques

    Thanks Jim.
    I have a whole book on the subject, but it seems to be a technique so filled with tecnhiques that are hard to describe in writing.. (?).

    If somebody was next to me, and showed what to do, then it might work....

    SO; when are you coming to Denmark??

    Emil, you are so right. Once Per "saw" what I was doing he got it down real quick. I would love to come to Denmark. I need to get rich and famous first. Well, maybe rich. The famous part I'll leave to my three son's. One day I hope to make that happen. I love teaching what I have learned about carbon.
