The steel rods are great for the bigger plates. They are also less messy. I get a lot of dripping from the larger paddles.

    Re: Beginning Wet Plate (part 1)

    I have a favor to ask. Could one of you fellows who has the John Coffer ďDoerís GuideĒ email a screenshot of pages 95 and 96 to me?

    Iím attending the all-around wet plate workshop at his farm upstate NY this coming August 22-24, so Iím reading and re-reading his manual and watching the DVDs in preparation. However, those two pages right in the middle of the albumen print-making process were missing in the manual he sent. And since John has neither computer nor telephone, Iíd need to write him a letter and request that he make the copies and mail them to me. Iíll do that if I need to, or just wait until Iím there this summer to fill in this two-page gap in my knowledge, but itíd be great if one of you fellows could just fill me in.

    My email address is on my website or I can send it to you via PM. Itís illogical, but I feel a little bit funny about just posting it here.

    Cheers,

    I was lucky to attend a five-day workshop with Borut Peterlin. I can say it was a wonderful experience - recommended.
    He is technically bulletproof, artistically very inspiring and most importantly a remarkable and friendly Person.

    Pepe,
    It is OK to watch You Tube demos,but get John Coffer's book for the real low down on what and how to do.
