Back to Work

Back in the darkroom and focusing on a new set of work

My immediate aim is to make gelatin glass plates up to 30x40cm – blue and UV sensitive plates – so I can print direct onto the glass.

The simplest, and best so far, description is on

But the details of temperatures and pouring techniques are not good.

I am finding that I need the emulsion at 49-52 degrees and the glass at 22-25 degrees

If the glass is warmer then the emulsion does not stick – cooler and it sets lumpy.

A long way to go yet.

I will photo the processes for my own notes – the levelling table etc seems to work
