I tried kallitype printing for the first time this weekend. Here are a couple of the resulting prints, toned in selenium.

Thanks for the enthusiastic comment. I took a week-long workshop in cyanotype and van dyke Brown about 8 years ago. I've been wanting to try kallitypes for quite some time, found some good instructions on the method on-line and these are some of the prints from my first try at it. Lots of fun, some interesting options for toning with gold, palladium or platinum as well.

Hi Paul, I love these, they work so well as kallitypes. Could you post the link to the online guide you have been using? Thanks.

Hey Mark, thanks for the kind words. I would certainly encourage you to try kallitypes! You can find Sandy King's excellent article on the process here: http://www.alternativephotography.com/process_kallitype.html
