    surely.


    paper: http://adorama.com/catalog.tpl?op=details&sid=10595423648206344&sku=LOCP81025R

    a wonderful paper. i can't get enough of it. it's graded, so you'll have to deal with that w/developers.

    printed through tissue paper.

    developers: two step bath. a soft developer (selectol soft) at a 1:5 or 6 dilution for 2:15 stand development; no agitation. then immediately to a hard developer (edwal ultra black) at 1:2 for 15 seconds agitated.

    i use a running water stop bath. figure 5 changes of water or 1 minute.

    a non hardening fixer. i use tf-4. w/tf-4; 30 seconds.

    allow excess fixer to drip off.

    straight to selenium toner 1:12 at 70f. agitate until you get an increased density in zone 0/1.

    wash for 5 minutes.

    drip dry.

    put into copper toner. agitate until desired tone.

    immediately wash. 5 minutes.

    don't over dry it as it will curl if you do. it is otherwise a non curling fiber paper.

    you will need to print this down because the copper will reduce density. figure a stop over your normal exposure.

    any questions, post away.

    Jdog; wow, dude...flattered.


    here is the dilemna; i don't have any luminos charcoal in 11x14 and i'm not sure that i will any time soon. i do have a show coming up in a month or so and i may print it 11x14, but i dunno.

    thoughts?

    Im there for a print too if you start printing. Maybe we get enough requests you can charge enough per print to foot the bill?

    there's no question that i will be printing 8x10. if you'd rather 11x14, we'll have to wait to see what i decide to do for the showing unless there are other alternatives.

    hmmmm....this brings up an idea (a grand one if i must say so myself). a print exchange would be nice. i have a nice set of tidy rules that i'll post. i'll start another thread in 'feedback'.

    that helps us little with the 11x14 dilemna, though.

    I could do with 8X10, I will just matte it larger I think. in brown or sepia matte maybe. Hmmm.
