    Roy,

    No, not yet. They'll be printed all VDB, Carbon, Pt/Pl or Polymergravure when the project is ready to be hung.

    Wow,

    That sounds very ambitious...

    After I got into pt/pd and gum over, I realized that I need more time before I can take up on Carbon printing. I will give myself a year or two to these processes.

    Happy printing,
    Tsuyoshi

    You may change your mind once you get to carbon and polymergravure.

    I've done many carbons in the past. They are my favorite of all printing processes. But, you are right, I might change my mind!

    Printing today on the 'smooth' side of the Platine. First print out and it looks very nice. Perhaps slightly more resolution on the smooth side rather than the textured.

    Also noticed less bronzing. Two reasons for this maybe. Today I'm using 3.5 ml of solution, yesterday was 4 ml. Today I'm allowing them to air dry w/no heat...yesterday's were force dried. Single coating on both yesterday and today.

    I think I'll play with double coating tomorrow...

    Double coat always with VDB. Let the first coat dry before applying the second. I'm not sure of your negative size but for 7x17 3,5 ml sounds okay. Too much solution and over exposure can cause bronzing. Are you printing a step wedge too?

    This is an awesome tip. I bought some Platine a few weeks ago but hadn't had the chance to print VDBs on it yet. Gonna do that next weekend.
