and perhaps a wee boatee
Wow...! That's what I was talking about earlier today. You know, creativity to come jump at me, and all that nonsense. All this reminded me that I got a bunch of old Agfa paper laying dead in a drawer. Had to take a closer look, and they all seem to be dated 1972 and 1975. All sizes from 3,5"x5" (very small indeed) up to 12"x16" (a bit large, but I got a knife somewhere). That gum process print looks absolutely fantastic! I got some handmade (of all things...) water color paper somewhere, and this might be something I could put it into some good use for?! I thing I'll need to go check that link and see what I find. Great prints, again :)
This is much better than my effort. Next week I will bleach mine and have another go, I used an image of a pony's head and suspect I didn't get enough contrast in the positive.I'll keep trying.
Can I ask what you expose these with. I was thinking of a mercury vapour lamp but they are thirty pounds a pop for 1000w. UV LEDs are twice the price for enough to give a minute or two exposure. If I ever decide to settle then I'll look at making a contact print set up. As you know sunlight up here takes ages or for ever.
Adrian, I use a home made UV box made with 4 x 10" tubes. Not very powerfull so have to leave it cooking for an hour for his !
Very nice indeed. I'd like to try this some day, it looks great.
