    I will. I like alternative processes. So anyone crazy enough to try something out has my respect. If I had the space and money I would do more myself as well. But since I live in an appartment with small pets I don't wanna mess with toxic stuff. (well I do but my girlfriend doesn't want me to :-) )

    Hello Peter,

    I understand what you say, it's the same thing for me...except that i don't have pets.
    I have the chance to have the place where i work. I've found in the old laboratory a mixer.....perhaps i will use it for the latex....or for dying the patatoe starch.

    Dying the patatoe starch will be the most delicate operation.

    Quick question that I'm asking here because I bet the answer is in the Lavedrine book. Do you know Shaz?

    What is the largest autochrome plate that was supplied by the Lumieres? What is the largest known example?

    Hello holmburgers,

    You got the answer page 181. A big plate is prepared and is cut at the end.
    The bis plate is 18cm x 84 cm. The Lumière cut this big plate and that give :
    1 plate 13x18
    2 plates 9x12
    2 plates 6x9
    1 plate 18x24
    3 plates 6x13
    4 plates 4.5x10.5

    All in centimeters. The biggest is 18x24.

    I hope it will help you.

    Shaz

    Hmmm, so about 7"x9.5".

    Not bad, but I was hoping for something like 20"x24"!

    I recall seeing a still life of fish in a basket by the Lumiere brothers, and it had the most incredible fidelity which led me to believe that it was larger than average.

    Ok Shaz, you must exceed 18x24!
