I am still working on this one; the white of the mug is really tricky to get right! Soot is really unforgiving as a pigment and is not consistent from batch-to-batch. I have now developed a process for washing many of the impurities from the soot that helps; unfortunately it takes about 6 months to wash each batch :-/

The image was taken with my home-brew 4x5 view camera (ilford VC paper for a negative). The title of the image is "Saturday night, Sunday morning".

Best regards,
