My prints went onto the mail last week. I'm assuming it will take some time for them to arrive. If you're lucky - you'll get a Christmas bonus.
Lillian, your beautiful prints arrived in the mail today! Definitely a great Christmas bonus! I like the hand-coloured print a lot -- is it only the leaves that were coloured? I'm assuming the range of colours in the background is from the lith, but I've been wrong before. However, I really love the stables print -- you've achieved such a beautiful range of tones that I can rarely get with the Foma. Thanks so much!

I too have received a beautiful Christmas present from Lilian. I suspect this will be the best Christmas gift this year.
I love the photo of stables. Lith treatment works just beautifully on this old but opulent building. If the stables have such attention to detail, I can only imagine how inside of the manor looks like.
The hand-colored leaves look amazing. I love the contrast of lightness and fragility of the leaves with dark and foreboding background. It is a very interesting and unusual use of lith process.
Unfortunately, my first attempt to make the prints failed. The old paper I used for one print had too much
mottling and the other did not produce the results I wanted. Anyway, I will try again over the holidays. Hopefully, I will get something sent by January. Sorry about the delay!
I finally got the prints done. I will ship them in the next couple of days once I find the suitable envelopes. I am so relieved! It was quite an adventure. I had no idea that getting three acceptable lith prints would be so difficult.
