    address for colorvir

    For what it's worth, I would like to report that I recently received an answer to my email request from a French address, a yahoo account, saying that the sender would be happy to send me a package of colorvir against an advance cheque to a sent to a French Postal address.I am not going to order it now, as I decided for an alternative, and as I received this email privately, I am not certain whether it is okay to post it here, but I will give it to anyone who contacts me privately.

    Steve, can't answer the second part of question but have a look at my previous post. The MD of Firstcall, a large mail order site in the U.K. dealing with the student market confirmed to me in an e-mail that Colorvir is still operating and he was expecting another consignment of kits from them.

    Good news.
    The colorvir company were very uncommunicative to me when I was writing the toning book. I drew a complete blank with them.

    Don't forget that Fotospeed's Palette Toner kit contains some very similar toners based on vanadium and titanium. Many of the other colorvir bits can be sourced elsewhere too eg sepia, and other bits of the kit.

    This thread is quite some years old, and I have a full Colorvir kit totally unused right here. What can anybody tell me about it? Thanks.

    Did it include a wire bound book (some 100 odd pages) ?

    It is an interesting process that suits some subjects. It can also look quite garish if overdone.

    No, just an 8 page leaflet. And the packaging list makes no mention of such a booklet.

    So... I've been doing photography since 1966, and darkroom since 1971, and only now do I have my hands on a Colorvir set. The possibilities are exciting, but somehow dampened by the realization that no matter what I do, it will be seen as a photoshop job. Just a gd dang bunch of photoshop trash. Further mitigated by the fact you can't even buy any refill chemistry any more.
    But you know what?, I'm going to make some Colorvir pictures anyway, and damn computer "art". That's not art, that's just computers.
    I've already got a couple pictures in mind. Thanks for the help.
