    Carbon print request

    I have been reading about carbon printing. I want to try it someday but have neither the time nor the space right now to devote to it.

    I keep reading about the releif and 3d nature of the prints but I do not think I fully understand what it means.

    I live in the sticks and have zero art galleries anywhere near me that have samples of carbon prints.

    Would it be possible for someone to send me a bad, destined for the round filing cabinet, test print? This way I can see what the descriptions are talking about. Even a part of a print would work.

    andrea zalme has a picture of the relief on her homepage. you can see it, if you scroll down a little. not what you are asking for, but maybe it's helpful to give you a better idea about the nature of the relief.

    Cool I'll check it out.

    Checked it out. Is that mat/glossy look the same as a B/W carbon print?

    One thing to remember is while all carbon prints exhibit some relief, the effect can vary quite a bit. Machine made pigment tissue like the type Bostick & Sullivan sells (and manufactures) shows very little relief. They do make a version that exhibits higher relief, but it's not as blatant an effect like you can get if you make your own tissue in a manner to exaggerate the relief effect. Some practitioners like high relief, others don't. To a small degree, the type of final support also contributes to the apparent relief.

    Yes, the glossy/matte look is also something that occurs with carbon.

    Believe it or not, I have lots of carbon prints that aren't any good. PM me and I'll send you a piece of one.
