    Is it possible to print Platin Palladium print on glass or plastic film and what would be the transparency of this print layer ?

    Thank you Vaughn , I liked the sun lit room at different times of day effect on Benazir Butto print very much. I think its a highly complicated chemistry to stick print on glass. If I am not wrong , he is printing 4 different layers to 4 different glasses and stack them. I think it causes lots of reflections , effect of thick glass coloring and loss of sharpness. May be it would be better to stack polyester films. Is it possible ?

    I do not think the substrate matters. Bill is using a non-gelatin coating, which should be able to go onto any clean surface. And with registration, one might be able to print multiple layers on the same piece of glass.

    The article is two years old, and he is still actively working and experimenting, the best thing would be to contact him directly. I might be able to find an email address for him, but a quick search of my email did not turn up anything.
