    Hello,
    With the help of Charles Berger and Tod Gangler, information and video, I made my first double transfer carbon black and a single layer withno double faults during the transfer. It is perfect, no defect in the transfer of acetate on watercolor paper.
    The image is very bright and icy, but the computer screen does not make this brilliant.
    I followed step by step technique of Charles and Tod video, but I made a Carbon Tissue Black with a very high burden of pigment and gelatin in order to obtain a wide range of black tones and half in a single layer.
    For the transfer, the video is excatement Tod.
    The negative is a negative inkjet I calibrated specifically for the Carbon.
    Sorry for English mistakes, I used an automatic translator, you can see my work on my website on my profiles
    Best regards

    I agree... very nicely done.

    Did you coat the acetate with albumen?

    Thank you,
    I tested various acetate treatment for Carbon Double Transfer
    I had no perfect result except by applying a layer of albumin in acetate

    Yes, I extend a layer of albumin in acetate

    Principe of The Carbon Double Transfer

    To achieve a carbon double transfer, we realize a Carbon on a sheet of acetate and acetate is transferred to a watercolor paper gelatin.
    When all is dry, remove acetate (photo) and the carbon is on the watercolor paper. The Carbon is bright with fine detail.
