View Full Version : Lith print exchange, anybody interested?
08-19-2007, 03:27 PM
Anybody interested in a group exchange of lith prints? Set up would be similar to the other exchanges with groups of 4 or 5 so that each person won't have to mail a bunch of prints. I think lith print should include straight lith and bleach and redevelop in lith. Imput is more than welcome so that those of us who are interested can set up and exchange that we all enjoy. Date of exchange would be set up after seeing how much interest there is.

Not a lith printer, but would almost consider trying lith printing, just to get one of your prints Mateo. ;)
How's it going out west?

I'll go for it.

well we got 4 of us, I think that's enough for me to say go for it. we'll wait a couple of weeks to let everyone in and then set up particulars. I'm thinking this will be a great way to see what people are doing with different techniques and papers.
Mike, I'll send you a PM
I don't do much lith printing, but -
Oh well. Count me in. :)
I'm in. Been wanting to do more lith. Sly

I've not done any Lith printing yet, but I have been inspired by Mike's beautiful lith printed postcard in the postcard exchange... I have the Fotospeed lith starter kit; so if an absolute beginner is allowed in I'll throw my hat in the ring!

I'm in please...

Thanks Tim, I'm glad you liked it.
I've only been lith printing for about 3 years now and the Fotospeed lith kit was how I started. There's some good advice in the instructions with the kit as well as loads of info here on apug and elsewhere.

Absolute beginners are absolutely welcome to participate. One of the things that I really like about these exchanges is that people get to see first hand what can be done with the process. Here's a list of things that I would like to serve as the purposes of this exchange:
1. beginners get to see what others with more experience are doing
2. printing problems can be solved with feedback from group
3. we all get encouraged to keep going through inspiration and help
4. we get to show off what we're doing to people who understand it
5. we all get to see what other materials can do (paper, developer, toning)
6. we all get more prints to hang on our walls
7. that cool feeling of getting something in the mail
any other ideas please chime in

Should we settle on a specific print size? I think it makes sense to trade no larger than 8x10 or 11x14. What do others think about this approach?
I would appreciate to know the materials used, dilutions, exposure times, etc. Details that would otherwise take a long time to experiment with.
Please count me in, I'm definitely interested.

Also, I'd rather not ship outside the US so maybe a US contingent and a Eu one.
All mounted & matted 8x10-ish,
Minimum/maximum mount size?
Some criteria for finished pieces would help make it special.
