I just ordered the essentials for some first time platinum and palladium printing from bostick and sullivan last night and knew it was going to be expensive, but perhaps wasn't prepared to pay £433 or around $600! I want to do some for the end of year degree show. The contact printing frame makes up around a quarter of this. I was wondering whether I could get one second hand easily enough or whether there was a way of avoiding getting one and using something else. would 2 sheets of glass simply do? Are there any corners I could cut to save some money? Obviously I need the chemistry but I mean in regards to the peripheral stuff.
