    Vaughn,

    Are those contact prints from 2 1/4" square negatives?

    I may have to do that. I recently learned of a photographer making 4x5 pt/pd contact prints. This is all very interesting.

    I processed the film with Pt/pd printing in mind -- much more contrast (over-developed) than a "normal" negative. The plan (when I have the time) is a small hand-made book from this summer's adventures..though since it is already winter and I have made more negatives, I might extend the project's time-frame. Just a few copies with pt/pd prints somehow made into book form. The above prints were just to test the feasibility and determine brush strokes, contrast, etc.

    I keep good records -- but of course this particular printing session I can not find. I printed one more last week...I used a mixture of 22 drops of Sol #1, 18 drops of palladium and 4 drops of NA2 -- then used 6 drops of this mixture for each print (neg on Arista Ultra). It was actually more of a "normal"contrast negative. The negatives shown here would have used less of the NA2 (a contrast-increasing form of platinum salts). Solution #1 is Ferric oxalate.

    The posted images were taken with a Rolleiflex, but I have some Diana camera negs that I might also use.

    Here is one more...

    Vaughn,
    Very nice. The wide emulsion frame is quite effective. I been shy of brush strokes so far. No longer.

    It works with the small images very well. But as in the Lake Powell image, one has to be careful of dark areas of the image being close to the edge -- and getting lost with the emulsion frame around it.

    Venchka -- I am doing another printing session tonight, and plan on making some more of the 2 1/4 negatives. If I have a successful evening, I'll post some more next week (since you have successfully swelled my head ).
