    Oil Transfer Print

    Hi,

    What is exactly Oil Transfer Print? Is is a general term for processes like Bromoil?

    Does anyone know where I can read about it further (I have a lot of questions this morning)? Thanks.

    Warmly,
    Tsuyoshi

    I suspect that's a shorthand for Bromoil Transfer -- essentially, the same process as Bromoil, except that once the color is applied to the print, it's brayed down on a receptor sheet that is the final display print. As I understand it (having never done any kind of Bromoil) the transfer print can be reinked and used a number of times.

    For any alternative process, the first place I'd look is the Unblinking Eye web site.
    Photography has always fascinated me -- as a child, simply for the magic of capturing an image onto glossy paper with a little box, but as an adult because of the unique juxtaposition of science and art -- the physics of optics, the mechanics of the camera, the chemistry of film and developer, alongside the art in seeing, composing, exposing, processing and printing.

    It is not shorthoand for a bromoil transfer. It is a different process in many was, altho, a lot of people who do bromoils also do oil prints.

    As Donald has suggeted check out unblinking eye, Ed Bufflow who runs that sites also does a lot of oil prints, and has an article that goes into great detail about this process.

    The final print does have a bromoil "look" .
