    Carbon tissue by inversion

    Reading Sandy's book about carbon tissue, I found this method, so I tried it with a good success, no bubbles, or other problems, it's work well for me.
    I used a plastic sheet and a magnetic frame, like paper I had in my darkroom a old poster, so I cut it and I used as support, fantastic adesion, after 24h perfect dry. I printed with this tissue, and my fnal support was a fixed out paper, I put it in the water and after 3 minutes I would try to lift a corner, and ooppsss... the support paper was separated by the fixed out paper easily, but....the carbos was always on the support and not transfert on the final support.... I don't understand what happend!
    Another question It's possible to make tissue by inversion using YUPO paper? and if yes it's different about "normal" paper, because yupo is like plastic?

    Stefano,

    Did you use a sheet of RC paper as the support for your carbon tissue? If so, it has a gelatin size and that would explain why the image would not transfer.

    I don't know if it is possible to make tissue by inversion using Yupo. Yupo has a sizing that might prevent transfer to another support. But try it and let us know how it works. This is all about trying new techniques with very old processes!

    Sandy,

    I dfidn't use a sheet of RC paper, but a FB glossy paper (Bergger Variable paper), so I'll make new carbon and I'll try again and I'm trying to make inversion by YUPO, so after I'll post it's possible.....

    Bye
