    Re: silver plated print

    What is the question ? Does it work: yes, I tried it, many, many years ago..it's nice to work with, but more for the novelty, the effect is so out spoken that it is not widely applicable. it works on some images.. Try to get hold of Judy;s original publication (Seigel, Judy. The World Journal of Post-Factory Photography. Issue #3. New York: Post Factory Press, 1999.)..I seem to recall there were some special tricks regarding processing..

    good luck,

    Cor

    Yes, it does work. It is too bad that publication of the "Journal" ceased. There was a lot of up to date useful information in each edition.

    Re: silver plated print

    Hi,

    thank you for you help.

    I've tried the formula found at the previous link on a Van Dyke print bleached with potassium ferricyanide and potassium bromide but it doesn't work. I obtain a print that seems equal to the original van dyke print without mirror / shiny effect...

    I suppose it needs modern photographic paper or RC paper to work.
