judging from your other bromoils i am sure
these will be beautiful once you get the kinks out of the process ...
maybe your bleach solutions have trouble penetrating all the emulsion ?
or your fixer / hypo isn't strong enough ?
your school is very lucky ( and your students are too ! )

Reason: you already have the book
This is where I wish I had taken the time to experiment, so I could help from a base of experience.
I hope yellow will take the bromoil and the part of the image that wouldn't bleach will remain as a permanent silver image. With the addition to your bromoil ink, I bet it will be beautiful.
hoping that too - time will tell..

The images turned out too flat - so I left them to dry over night, and now I have just added some more blacks into the images..
Too much? I am unsure (the images submitted here are actually higher in contrast than the originals..)
Maybe tomorrow, I'll add some warmth to the images.. maybe some more pencil drawings, or maybe I'll tone them in coffee (I think the white background is a little disturbing - makes the contrasts higher..)
Again: time will tell - I havn't given up .. yet......
(I uploaded the image in the gallery too...)
now added some strong coffee to give warmth...
so what about the background - that's my main concern now..
Leave is as is, or change it and then maybe destroy the whole...

How about unevenly rip the edges and burn a bit? On the other hand, who the hell am I to give you advice?

this pic made the papers, so it is offficial I guess....
I thought they were brilliant when you shared their creation with us. They look even better in context.
thanks Eddie. (I hope you mean the images....)
