Hello, I'm just about to try my hand at carbon printing. For the time being I have just two questions, though I'll probably ask a lot more in the near future. 1. The surface of my tissue, though dry, has remained a bit soft. The glop is flexible and has a slightly soft feel when I touch it with my finger. Besides, although yesterday, after I poured it, it had a perfect surface, after drying it exhibits a very slight "wavy" texture, plus a couple of pits which definitely weren't there yesterday. The temperature of the glop was about 30 or 31 degrees Centigrade (86-88 F) when I poured it. What happened? Was the layer of glop too thick? What makes a perfect surface turn into a not-so-perfect one while it dries? 2. Sandy King's article states that "The contrast of a carbon image is controlled by matching the dichromate concentration of the sensitizer to the DR (density range) of the negatives: solutions high in dichromate are used for high contrast negatives; solutions low in dichromate for low contrast negatives.". Does this mean that adding more dichromate lowers the contrast of the print? This seems strange to me. Isn't it the other way around? :confused: Thank you.
