    AZO Prints: Anyone interested in a trade?

    Hi All,

    I've never seen an AZO print and was curious if anyone would be willing to sell or trade one to me for a nominal fee, just to get a sense of what all the fuss is about. Thanks,

    GB

    There's not much fuss anymore. Kodak stopped making Azo last year and supplies are almost non-existant.

    Michael A. Smith is having another silver chloride contact paper manufactured. We'll have to see if it's as good.

    Thanks Philip

    I took a look at the site, Philip, really good work in there. Especially liked Bidegain's stuff. I'm not actually looking to spend $100 plus on a print right now, rather just want to see what AZO looks like. It may be cheaper to just buy some in the long run and try myself. Thanks for the heads-up on the site, though.

    Where are you located?

    In Portland, OR, one of the Contact Printers Guild members, Patrick Kolb, is showing a nice series of Azo prints through the early part of this month.

    Ray's stuff is beautiful. But it's not AZO. It's Pt/Pd.

    Chris, I'm overseas, so can't make it to Oregon. Thanks for the suggestion, though.

    A print made on AZO paper, a Kodak chloride paper. It's (it was) a contact only paper.

    Azo is a now defunct Kodak brand of contact printing paper.
    Using film since before it was hip.


    "One of the most singular characters of the hyposulphites, is the property their solutions possess of dissolving muriate of silver and retaining it in considerable quantity in permanent solution" — Sir John Frederick William Herschel, "On the Hyposulphurous Acid and its Compounds."

    Gee, and all along I've been fooling myself.

    I make a pretty darn good duplicate of it in my own lab. The only thing I cannot do is coat on SW FB paper. I just cannot get any. Otherwise it is as good or better than Azo.

    At least that is what my students said by the end of the workshop.
