So I just mixed up some saltwater made from salt I collected at Spiral Jetty. I am following the formula outlined in C. James book with the 4 tablespoons of salt to 1 quart of water.
I have soaked 10 sheets of Platine and 5 sheets of Bristol Smooth. I have had very good luck with Cyanotype and VDB on the Bristol, so we'll see how it goes.
I also mixed up some new Silver Nitrate Solution #2 as outlined in his book as well.
Hopefully I can coat in a few hours and see where this takes me.
I plan to print images from Utah's Great Salt Lake with this process. Hopefully all of the pieces come together...
Oh have I mentioned I've never done this before? Yeah, I'm nervous.
