    Thanks guys. I've been out of the print making business for awhile, but am embarking again with some recent photos. Looking at the print in hand, I feel like the dog's nose is close to the border in...

    Nice ones definitely. What paper are you using, and what formula? I personally like out of focus elements in my prints. Part of the reason is they seem to add more dynamic range to the print without...
  3. More on Working with Ware's New Cyanotype Process

    On Earl's suggestion, and because I had all the chemicals I needed for it on hand, I mixed up a batch of Ware's "New" Cyanotype. My first foray into Cyanotypes was a Photographer's Formulary kit for...

    I've mixed up some of Mike Ware's formula, and I had forgotten how finicky it is about paper etc. I did a test print to make sure that it indeed was working, and ended up with a horrible yellow fog...

    You know, Earl, when I first used Fabriano Artistico, it was with Ware's formula, and I didn't acidify it. I will have to try it again with the traditional process as well. I do like both formulas,...

    Well done, Earl!

    I'm going to have to make up some of Mike Ware's new process, and do some side by side testing myself. 9 steps versus 17 is definitely quite a difference. I do think that the...

    Some Cyanotype thoughts, and a print.

    The attached print is of the traditional cyanotype process 50/50 mixture on Stonehenge paper, and using the Denver, Colorado sunlight to expose. This was done on a cloudy day. I've not done any...

    Earl, nice print, and nice photo! You got a great tonal range. I did my first cyanotypes with Mike Ware's process, and it was from using his process that I taught myself to acidify the first bath in...

    Sounds interesting DaCh. Your LEDs sound similar to the ones I had, though I payed more 2 years ago. I make prints larger than 4 x 5, and my experiments with them gave pretty uneven results. I was...

    Looks good, though your paper looks colored more like tea toning. I've not used wine tannin, but I've used tannin from the chemistry supply here in town, and who knows where it came from, but it...

    Thanks Earl. I think it was from you that I first learned that a cyanotype should be overexposed for bleaching and toning, and I absolutely agree with you. It's interesting to find the detail still...

    Madonna and Child Tannin Experiment.

    I had some over-exposed cyanotypes of this print, so I experimented with bleaching with calcium carbonate, and toning with tannin. I ended up with this sort of duotone effect where the darker regions...

    Thanks Evan, I was thinking along those lines, but hadn't come to that exact conclusion. Thinking back though, the Stonehenge paper does tend to have more wash off during development. I still like...
