I am Richard Puckett, introducing my Texas Chrysotype process, which was presented in the March/April 2012 issue of View Camera. If you have not got access to back issues of VC, visit unblinkingeye.com. The process is characterized by: Fine grain Excellent Dmax and Dmin with good tonal separation between the two extremes. In other words, true continuous-tone images Dry print out. You determine correct exposure by direct examination. No humidification of paper. For the January 2012 proof of process demonstration to members of the Austin Alternative Processes Group, I used Arches Platine stored in a closed plastic bin with 4 pounds of silica gel. RH was 29%. Economical 10% gold chloride solution. Key is the addition of ascorbate to ammonium ferric oxalate. Some of the gold precipitates out to form a foundation that smooths out the image and greatly extends its tonal range. Absolutely repeatable. Make print after print of the same negative. Standard clearing as for ziatypes. Contrast control by various means. I have put six samples up in my APUG album. Incidentally, I have developed a (significant) variation on the process that makes it equally simple to print with palladium and platinum, as well as gold and platinum. I will be announcing that process later this year in another magazine article.
