Anyone here use it?
i just inherited a bottle of it and can't wait to try it out!
Yes, This Rockland liquid emulsion is available in VC & AG plus. AG Plus is a slow emulsion so less sensitive to light compared to other similar products. You will not be able to use filters with it. The emulsion has a greenish nostalgic cast.
Liquid Light VC on the other hand, can be used with any filters to control contrast.
AG Plus can be used with reversal developer to produce Tintypes. It has a highest silver content of all the liquid emulsions.
The base support must be well prepared and can be almost any material.
Consult, or read up on the process. I do not feel this forum is the place to go into detail of the processes or even the preparation, but there are plenty of sites and books on the subject of alternative processes. Any problems, get back. Good luck.
It arrives as a viscous liquid. I use a baby bottle warmer to melt it so that it is a liquid that can be coated. Don't heat it too much.
I made some lovely prints on water color paper using liquid light.
2 coats was sufficient. i melted it in a boiling water and brushed it on with a foam sponge brush.
I can't wait to get me some AG+ and try some tintypes with it.
I did some neat prints on ceramic tile. The great thing is that if you don't like it, don't fix it, and it'll wash right off.
The alternative photography process site has several artists with galleries who use liquid emulsions. There are also a couple of articles regarding use.
i've printed photographs on glass and made dry plates using liquid light.
the foam brush deniz suggests works really well
