    Hi,
    I would like to make carbon color Cyan, Magenta,Yellow.
    I want to make each one different carbon acetate.
    I would then double transfer made ​​by successive transfer.
    BUT I would like to successive transfers on a glass and no on a double transfer paper.
    Is it possible to do a double transfer of carbon on acetate on a glass for final support of the double transfer?
    If yes, can you tell me how
    Thank you for your help

    Philippe

    I've done this on paper, but not on glass. If you're just interested in a transparent substrate and not necessarily glass, I would suggest estar melinex - subbed polyester film base. (Available from photo formulary.) I use it as a temporary support when double-transferring carbon, and I've also used it as three single-transfer sheets of C, M and Y carbon that can be lined up and presented as one color piece (same as I've done with casein on multiple glass sheets).
