    OK, let us start round 6 of the lith print exchange.

    Here is what it is about copied from round 5 which was copied from round 4.

    1. This is about sharing what can be done in lith printing with the emphasis on the process and not on the value of the prints themselves. I plan on sending my best attempts and I'm sure everyone else will do the same.

    2. Everyone will be divided into groups of 3 or 4 people. So the maximum number of prints you will have to send is 3.

    3. Print size and presentation will not have any requirements. Prints may be on fibre or RC paper. They may be unmounted, mounted, and/or matted. It's up to you.

    4. The print may be straight lith, toned lith or bleach and redevelopment in lith.

    5. The addition of explanatory notes is optional, but the recipients may appreciate an explanation of the process, such as paper type, lith developer type, dilutions etc.

    6. The exchange is open to anyone who wants to print in lith. Experience is irrelevant although I will mix the groups to give a good mixture.

    7. This is an international exchange, so be prepared to send your prints anywhere in the world.

    8. Sign up period ends April 30.

    9. Prints to be sent by the end of May. That provides four weeks to make your prints after the sign up period ends.


    So who wants to take part?

    Cheers
    Ruediger

    I've done a print, but I'm not totally thrilled with it, so I'm going to try again.

    I recieved darkosaric's interesting and gritty graveyard scene, and have been remiss in aknowledging it.

    And today there was a beautiful lith print from John waiting at my door. I like it very much. It is a good example of what lith and a good execution of it can add to an image. Thanks John, your print is very appreciated here.

    Cheers

    I finally got time to do some lith printing. The prints are being flattened and I'll get them in the mail this week.
    Thanks everyone for your patience.
