    As someone who is also a mixed media artist, this has "collage material" written all over it! I need to find me some!

    InkyAlchemy Do you have any examples of your work you could PM me? Perhaps I could be persuaded to mail you some. I'll be setting up a darkroom shortly at my new place so I should be discovering some soon enough.

    sly I am SO jealous of those. They are absolutely beautiful! What process are those from?

    Those are really cool, thanks for sharing.

    Just straight forward silver printing. They're test strips that never went in the developer (can't remember why.... possibly I cut up paper for test strips and some never made it to the paper safe.... were discovered on the table the next time I had the lights on). The paper is probably Ilford MGWT. They weren't fixed either, and have faded since they were scanned to share here.

    I'm stunned at the color they produced, Mine usually get the normal faint pink then eventually turn brown. In my experience, fixing them will cause the colors to remain permanent. (Now this is off of remembering what they looked like, and only over a period of 3 years)

    The fixer will wash out all UNDEVELOPED halide silver leaving a blank paper with some stain.

    True story, but trashotype as I described it probably came in contact with various darkroom chemicals including developers. I see no change during the fixing of the paper. In fact, I usually am fixing under white light because I discover the paper while I'm cleaning up and toss the print into the fixer before I dispose of it.
