    My prints will be going out tomorrow. Lith printing is a lot of fun. QUALITY lith printing was a lot more work than I thought. 12 hours in the darkroom to get 6 prints that met the grade. Accepting what falls is one thing. Romancing the paper as Wolfgang indicated, to give me what I wanted proved to be harder than Regular printing. I did learn a lot about replenishment on the fly though.

    All of my exchange friends should have my prints by now (sent about 2 wks ago).
    I sent two figuring if you can't do quality, go for quantity (:. I made the first, maple leaf on Ravine beach, then found another I liked better.....so I sent both. The other is The Pipe Corner of the South (different paper in gallery, not as good as the ones sent out ): ). Both prints were on Kentmere warmtone VC semimatt in Labor Partner lith from a 35mm neg and are in the gallery.

    Well that is just the thing. Often I like my first print. Then I like my second better. And then it just goes on until I feel something even better around the corner; just as the developer gets red and dies.

    Now I have four prints that I really like. (Remembered to keep one for myself this time...) But then I had those new negatives developed and am going down to the darkroom tonight to see what will happen.

    Hi Mark, I just received your prints today. What do you mean if you can't do quality go for quantity? I think these are some very nice prints. I particularly like the leaf. Such texture! The lith process really works for this print.

    Hopefully I will have mine in the mail this weekend.

    Thanks again Mark

    Sorry Mark, your print hasn't reached the UK yet. I'll let you know when it does.

    I managed to do 2 prints I'm happy with a couple of weeks ago, but I've been away since then. Hopefully, I'll get the final one done this week.

    Cheers

    Mike

    Vet 173, I recieved your print yesterday. Thanks! I love the tangerine tones in it. Can you supply any technical info? Any toner used, or is this tone inherent to the paper/developer combination you use?
    I've done some work for this exchange, but am not yet happy with what I've got. I'll get something out sometime this month

    I did some printing today but I dont think I'm completely happy with my prints so I might re-do. When I got to the point I wanted my dev went off, pity.
