    I've been meaning to make albumen prints for years and and after I saw a young man printing in albumen from old glass plate at this years Platypus party in Santa Fe I was so jazzed that I put forth the effort to go for it.

    Of course I had to wait for my albumen to denature so after starting it in July I could finally no longer control my urge to print it in October.
    This is my first decent print. I had a steep learning curve...I dont have a dark room so I was improvising in my powder room and forgot that mirrors bounce light:p and fogged all but 2 pieces of paper I had sensitized..... long story short...I have 2 albumen prints to my name now![​IMG]
