    BW Photo vs Bromoil version

    If you look in my gallery I show 2 photos; One being a normal Photo in Black and White and the other is the same photo in a Bromoil. The scans were done fast and I did not take the photos out of the frames. The next scans will be better.

    Later Sir William

    Hi gma
    Yes they were both made the same day from the same negtive. Only the bromoil was bleached and black ink put over the paper again to get the Bromoil effect.

    It looks really interesting - the pictoralist effect of bromoil print really intrigue me. What the most reasonable source of materials to start with bromoils?

    Hi Juraj Kovacik

    Not knowing where you are from here is a website that offers a Start kit for Bromoils

    http://www.firstcall-photographic.co...oil%20Kit.html

    Here are books in pdf format you can dowload for free.

    So I hope this will help

    I've ordered and they wrote me from firstcall back with this:

    Regarding your export order, as we have no spare capacity for export orders right now, we cannot unfortunately accept your order at this time.

    If you care to reorder next month, we may be able to process your order then.
    This unusual situation has resulted from our major supplier, Ilford, going into receivership.

    try Jand C for some bromoil paper, altho you can use several other regular papers.
    unblinkingeye has some information regarding this process.

    Bostick and Sullivan carries supplies (i.e. tutorial's and even a video. brushes, ink).

    just google on bromoil and you will find a lot of stuff. look for Gene Laughter website .

    I think there are several vendors in the UK who also carry materials in kit form, or you can start putting together items from other people who carry art supplies.
    I don't know why Ilord's issue would impact this process, as everything we are using comes from other company's. However, one of the papers suggested is their matt paper, however, agfa or luminous charcoal is also on the suggested list.
