    I took a foray into a different process: Gum Oil. I bought a book on the process a few years ago and finally tried it. The first 2 results....

    Now all I need to do is get things selling or at least a display. Anyone else having any luck with getting non-traditonal prints into gallery space. I keep hitting a brick wall. Lots of ooohs and aaaaahs but no takers.
    Any ideas?

    No transfer. This is a true photographic process. You can find more information about the basics of the process straight from the man who invented it, Karl P. Koenig.

    His book is very infomative and interesting as is the man, him self.
