    I don't know how many alternative printing techniques we now have represented, but it is good to see so amazing results, done "by hand", so to speak.

    I have one, I havn't seen too many of elsewhere...
    don't even know, whether it applyes to alternative printing.. but it is alternative..

    "Acetone print".
    one of the most easy - fastest - and most poisonous techniques I know of....

    first a normal print is made - then a colour copy on a copying maschine.

    this copy is laid on a piece of thick copper printing paper, and then soaked with acetone....

    another piece of paper is put on top, and the whole thing pulled through a etching press, under high pressure...

    voila - the image has been transferred to the copper printing paper..

    this is later slightly hand coloured.

    the acetone is the tricky part. you can make beautiful prints in two minutes, but each print will take ten years of your sane life......;-)

    Lovely prints. Acetone is not dangerous. You actually make small amounts in your body.

    Thank you Don, Love your work.

    Here is another gum over cyano that I just finished today. Another cliche, pears are such a wonderful shape.

    Sly, Both the Calla and the pears are superb! I think the Calla is probably the best example of a gum over cyanotype that I've ever seen.

    Joe, I'm blown away by your praise . I feel like I"m just getting going with LF and alt printing. Thank you so much.

    I hope this thread isn't dying...
    so here is my latest bromoil print.

    Laura is a student of mine. she is a fantastic person - extreamly beautiful - pure gold in her soul..
    And to top it, she is a fantastic painter! With a large, impressive production behind her....

    (And she is only 23...!)
    So I made this portrait of her in bromoil - and I did it "wrongly" on purpose - to get a sense of sketch in the image. Because of her being a painter..

    Question is - does it work?

    Absolutely. It may be the most beautiful print of all your work I've seen (i.e. a superlative superlative.)
