    Who here has had experience with lith printing? I am interested in this process and wanted to see if anyone had any tips on getting started. I saw that most suppliers carry a kit to get started which normally includes 10 sheets of paper (usually some kind of warm tone) specifically for lith printing, the correct developer, and a few other things. Should I skip the kit and just buy a bigger box of the correct paper? If so, what brand/kind? How about the developer, what brand, where, how much?

    BTW, in case you are hinging your advice on how much darkroom experience I have...I have about 3-4 years darkroom work with basic b&w silver gelatin.

    Thanks!

    Read everything you can from Tim Rudman, for starters. He's a master of the process.

    One of our members, Santino, has done beautiful lith prints. He could probably give you some helpful hints.

    This is a process I am going to learn, myself. :drool: I can't wait to get past festival time and be able to devote myself to something new again! :D
