    Color Carbon
    I've been thinking less about this lately, but it's an equally exciting process for amazing and completely archival color photographs. ...
    BREAK!
    Luis Nadeau covers this whole process in detail in his books on carbon printing.
    Word is, it is a process for martyrs only -- not that such things stop me!
    High quality yellow pigment tends to be opaque, which presents some challenges; the cyan glop requires very careful formulation to achieve the correct contrast/density.

    Thanks Ian, I will look into it. Which book are you referring to?

    I'm trying to get a copy of Viscount Hanworth's (David Bertram Pollock) 'Amateur Carbon Prints', but it's hard to find.

    I've always wanted to be a martyr!, plus, I've got time... like the rest of my life.. to figure this out.

    fyi, I saw these recent large Carbro prints and they were stunning.

    Don't know if there is additional info to gleen regarding their process.

    Awesome, thanks for the link. How would you describe them?

    Turns out that fixed out lith film might not be the best bet due to the presence of gelatin which, although a suitable subbing layer, might interact with the dyes. This is what one would need: http://stores.photoformulary.com/-st...NEX/Detail.bok

    Compared to other Carbro's I've seen at the Eastman house these "seemed" to be printed on a matt paper, the only gloss coming from the layers of pigment. They were also quite large, maybe 30x40.

    These folks are DOING IT. Carbon that is... and B&S might have it on the market soon. I guess the rumours are true.

    "History and Practice of Carbon Processes" is a veritable tome of information. I believe it is out of print One of his other books "Modern Carbon Printing" may cover colour, I'll have to look it up and get back to you.

    I've seen some of Luis Nadeau's work, and it is AMAZING: accurate vivid colour, massive relief, and a wonderful 'wet' look.
