I just got a fantastic 8x10 Ziatype from Christian. The more I see of this process, the more I'm interested.
Apologies again for the delay with mine. We're still sorting out things with the new baby and the darkroom, but getting there. Anyone expecting a print from me will get one.
Hi all just a few words to keep inform that I ship the prints To anyone 3 weeks ago. So if you don't receive them keep me inform.
I also received a beautiful print from Christian. Thanks for the wonderful image.

Another good one is gold in low quantity it as the same effect as platinum but give colder tone .
I should also add that ziatype may be control by many factor : humidity , chemistry , and even developer. Sullivan and Weesse demonstrate the use of a method where the humidity is control ( 50-65% Rh), in this case you control the color by the chemistry ( gold , ferric salt, platinum, tungstate, etc) . hope this help
