    Re: The Dye Transfer Process

    Even though I have a headache from watching it I think I'll start dye transfer printing. I have fifteen to twenty years left. I might be able to get a dozen good ones in that time.

    Here in Atlanta, I knew people who made dye transfer prints back in the '80s. The results were beautiful.

    Are the needed supplies still available?

    I put this link in my Eliot Porter thread but it belongs here too…… it bit less "dense" than the previous video.

    If you can spend the time with both you will have an idea what it takes….. or you might be running screaming for the latest Epson Inkblower.

    Which you might need anyway to make your digital separation negatives.

    We live in good times where both classical, new and hybrid printing workflows are possible.

    I had read a lot about the dye transfer process that Bob Pace had written, but I never knew that he sounded like a character from The Sopranos until I watched that video.

    NOT EVEN CLOSE! Obviously you have never had the pleasure of viewing a dye transfer print.

    Re: The Dye Transfer Process

    Thanks for posting the video it brings back good memories. I had the good fortune to teach several large format workshops with Jim Bones in the 80's and 90's. He gave me a few lessons in Dye Transfer, a remarkable process. I had a elementary grasp of the subject just as Kodak quit producing the materials.

    Re: The Dye Transfer Process

    As Terry was asking, I too am interested, are the materials for producing dye transfers still available?
