I just got Martin's cyanotypes, and I feel like I made out like a bandit!

Hi everyone,

Sorry I've not been replying much, bit of family stuff going on (and I wasn't looking at my exchanges in order of deadlines so started all the other ones before this one, oops!) so there is a little bit of a delay here. I have recieved Martin's cyanotypes and they are gorgeous :) I liked the negatives on the back, it's an interesting concept to prove limited edition (and I'm happy I got the boobs! ;) :D )

I also received Rich's lith prints. Are they both lith prints? I like the high contrast pure b&w one more than the coloury one... Almost all the lith prints I see in the gallery have that touch of various colours to it and I'm wondering if you know of any modern ones that will print B&W like the kodakgraph(?) non-existent lightweight paper you sent? It is very pretty on my lightbox too.

I'm somewhat toying with a negative to print right now so hopefully/maybe by the end of the week I'll have sent mine out finally. Sorry for the delay.

Monty

I got my envelopes into the mail today. Hope they don't take too long on their travels.

I recieved Rich's lith prints last week. Both gorgeous. Makes me want to get back to some lith printina and work more on my toning skills.

Yes Heather, both are liths. Hues will vary with light sources. Got Monty's platinum last night and can't wait to see it in daylight. It sings like a bird!

I received Fred's pt/pd print in today's mail, with one cap of the tube missing. :o However, the print and the letter were there. I would love to visit that place, but I am a sucker for places like this. I think that your highlights look fine, Fred.

Lillian's two prints arrived today! The postman was mean and made the envelope fall facedown on the floor so I initially thought the magical film fairies had delivered me a random free pack of film ;) Don't worry about the coating, I only suggested the watercolour techniques because it'd save you money practising. I really like the stream one because it looks like a big fluffy cloud running through it and I like the strong geometry of the boardwalk one as well. Thank you :)

Still waiting for Monty's print, keeping an eye out for it every morning...

Thanks Diane, I guess I will have to tape them shut next time. Still waiting for word from Carl, and Mario. That did take a while to arrive.

Fred,
Actually there was tape, but it was just ordinary scotch tape it seemed to me.

Well this is the only day I am home for awhile and it was wonderful to see Martin's beautiful cyantypes. Thank you. I was also graced with Lillians superb pt/pd prints. They are incredibly well printed and exceed normal superlatives as to beauty. They are special. Lillian you are no longer allowed to enter under anything other than E!!!

Thank you,

Monty

ps Hopefully Lillian and Heather you both will receive my prints soon as they were all sent at the same time.

I recieved mine this morning. It was like christmas opening it up and it's a beautiful print! Thank you, Monty!
I have finished printing mine tonight (pending them drying overnight) so I'll write out my letters and envelopes and send them very soon. Sorry for being so slow though thankfully I feel like I'm getting out of my funk finally...

Yes, I did use some scotch tape, but I could not find the packing tape at the time I was putting them together.
