    Liquid emulsion

    I wouldn't mind trying something like this http://www.alternativephotography.co...he_forest.html

    I took a similar kind of photograph today with this print in mind, looking at silverprint but I can't find any liquid emulsion, they surely must have it though. What's it called, what's the best stuff to get? Also do you have any idea what this is printed on? I was thinking of buying cheapy canvases, what is the background coloured with?

    Liquid Light is one product. Ilford made such a product. IDK if it is still made.

    Paper can be tinted with dilute pigments, dyes, coffee, tea and a whole host of materials. You can use just about any paper but if you want production grade DW FB Baryta, it is sold through the Formulary and is where I get mine.

    www.freestylephoto.biz lists a few different liquid emulsions. The Maco stuff is supposed to be pretty good too. Item number 147 on the list of a zillion things to try!

    Try Silverprint, Martin sells Liquid Emulsions. Usually these are just commercial paper emulsions re-packaged, but exactly the same as used to coat conventional enlarger papers.

    Many years ago a UK company (Barfen) sold an Ilford emulsion, but this came from the Ilford's Nuclear Emulsions division.

    I have been trying the Fotospeed variable contrast emulsion available in the UK.

    Here are a couple of examples:

    http://www.apug.org/gallery/showphot...86&ppuser=8180

    I haven't got the hang of coating the paper yet, but it has some good possibilities.

    I also believe the Silverprint book on liquid emulsion has just been republished. might be worth a look.

    I was actually looking into liquid emulsions the other day with the intention of printing on cotton sheets and was looking at Silverprint's website. It took me a while but there is some on there, under alt-processes rather than the developers section.

    Why would Liquid emulsions be listed in a Chemicals/Developer section, they aren't processing chemicals

    I've been toying with the idea of trying some as well.
