    Liquid Light Sydney Darkroom

    Inspired by 'The Great Picture' I will be making some large fabirc prints using liquid light over the next few months.

    Are there any sydney based artists/ photographers that have or could reccommend a darkroom that has a large wet area, is run by down- to- earth people that are available?

    Also, any advice from users with experience with this kind of emulsion or 'Kwik Print'?

    Thanks

    Stephen Frizza can probably help you. He will more than likely reply to this.

    Chris Reid at Blanco Negro gets my vote. He's a fantastic guy and great to chat to.

    Liquid Light has an ISO of around 1 (one!) and is sensitive to blue only.

    hi jag

    i don't have any sage advice . i've no experience using it on fabric, but on other things ( glass metal paper, plastics ).

    sometimes older developer gets more speed + contrast as it ages ...
    when you melt it down, only do a small amount at a time, the more you heat+melt it
    it tends to fog ... AND while i hate suggesting to use a hardener, you might consider
    using alum hardener in your binding agent when you sub your fabric and in your chemistry ..
    sometimes liquid emulsion likes to lift + frill and unfortunately slide off what it is painted on ...

    i'm sure your guru in your part of the world will know all this, and i'm being redundant

    using liquid emulsions is a blast ..
    have fun

    john
    im empty, good luck
