    Green tone from lith printing. How and what mtrl to use?

    Hi!

    During our bathroom re-freshing process, we decided to keep the emerald-turquoise color from the early 90īs. Not really as aweful as it may sound and if using well considered design elements we attempt using the color as an opportunity instead and turn it into an advantage. How?
    Well, with LITH prints of course!!! (...and else solutions)

    But, I donīt know how. Flipping around in Tim Rudmanīs wonderful and excellent "The world of lith printing" I see the color I aim for. Exactly! The picture of a (skiff) boat on a beach on one of the first (20?) pages do have the green tone I urge for. I donīt want subliminal color nor green split in dark areas. I want distinct green color all over the grey scale, from dark to highlights. But how to achieve and what material to use?


    Many thanks for your advise!

    Well, "distinct" in respect of achievable from lith printing of course.

    For you who not (yet) own "The world of lith printing" it might help with a color reference to what I am looking for. A combination of the colors in attached pictures is right on spot.

    Without having the book in my hands when writing I referred incorrectly. I meant the picture "Sunset" on page 50 in "The world of lith print printing".


    Do anybody have any recommendation? What procedure, material and settings to use to achieve the green color similiar to this picture?

    Thanks!

    My copy is down in the darkroom right now and I am too consumed with my morning coffee to go look up the picture of which you are speaking. But is there not a description of what materials and process were used? If not, I suggest you contact Tim (he posts here sometimes) with your question. I am sure he will answer.
