    What are the most interesting print materials you've seen?

    What are some of the most interesting print surfaces/materials you've seen - or even heard of?

    Any idea of the processes involved?
    If possible, please show an example.

    I really find that liquid emulsion is something that's fun and creative, and at the same time simple to use. It only really requires patience, the rest is easy.

    But historically the daguerrotype has always fascinated me. There is at least one practitioner of that art here on APUG. It's a little too dangerous and temperamental for me, so I'll leave it to others, but nonetheless it's fascinating!

    I think leaf prints are pretty darn interesting. Also about as simple as can be.

    I once stood in front of Robert Mapplethorpe's Head of Mercury - platinum on white silk alongside a square of rich purple fabric the same size as the photo. May not be the most unconventional of materials but it knocked this boy on his butt.

    VanDyke on burlap - again not the most exotic ever, but it was certainly challenging both technically and artistically (making the subject matter jive with the texture of the substrate).

    I assume this is a mica sheet?

    Where does one buy large mica sheets?
