    Painting an Elwood?

    I think an might be 'interesting' painted. Fully functional now and will be after primping.

    Get some tomatoes to throw...

    I had 4 Elwoods. Now 3. One Iron 8X10 Elwood I gave to a friend. Iron as Elwoods can have the support beam made of iron or aluminum. Same molds.

    I use a wall mount 5X7 Elwood the most. It just hangs around, out of the way. Very lightweight. The wall is the support beam. The tabletop aluminum 5X7 Elwood is cute. An aluminum 8X10 Elwood is the possible target of paint. Not the 5X7's.

    I am not much of a painter, more of a broad brush type painter. Pics shot today after reassembly from moving. The blue reduction cone will not be painted as it matches the wall mount 5X7. Who does reductions these days?

    What say ye? Any ideas? Paint schemes? Colors?

    I painted one enlarger and stand yellow so it was more visible under safe light.

    Mine is Elwood Gray. Highly unimaginative.

    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    Maybe a picture of a Pookah? (You gotta be old to get this)

    I say, 'yes do it. '

    I totally rebuilt my old Seal 200 press. I replaced all the rusty fasteners and re-painted it, re-wired it, put on a new thermostat and rubber mat. I'm glad I did it, it really looks like new. I don't know about other darkroom workers, but I can't make a fine print in a dirty environment with dirty equipment. I mean, physically, yes it can be done, but mentally, it messes with my compulsive personality.

    I do understand that. I have been thinking about painting Elwood for some time. Years.

    I need to finish my new shop setup first, as I cannot start a project until my tools are put away. This may take awhile.
