What You'll Get
This workshop is a thorough introduction to the delightfully versatile carbon printing process, developed in 1855.
Carbon prints are capable of a wide range of image characteristics. They can be virtually any color or tone, and the final image can be placed on a wide variety of surfaces, including glass, metal, paper, as well as various kinds of synthetic surfaces.
Students will learn how to make carbon tissues by hand from gelatin, glycerin, sugar, and watercolor pigment. The carbon tissue is sensitized and exposed under a U.V. light source, then transferred to a base. Unexposed areas are washed away in warm water leaving a raised exposed image, which is a highly unique quality of the carbon print.
Students should bring large format or digital negatives for contact printing.
