    UV Bliss

    I just had to share this because no one I can talk to here cares one whit about a box that produces light which is harmful to your eyes

    The box was on for about 30 seconds (the first time ever!) so the bulbs hadn't completely come on yet.

    I have a sheet of cyanotype drying and I mixed up some ferric oxalate to print palladiums tomorrow... I'm so excited I'm bouncing off the walls!

    It looks like quite a few bulbs, how big can you print now?

    My 16x20 contact frame slides in nicely, so up to 16x20

    There are 12 24" bulbs in the box.

    Drool, drool, drool, slurp, drool.

    I was just looking at the stuff to build one of these myself. Looked tough. Was it?

    I only needed one band-aid
    It wasn't difficult at all, the only problem was cutting the initial sheet of plywood down--it was too big to cut in the garage and it was raining outside for a straight week so it pushed my whole project back. I've printed up one cyanotype step-tablet while working towards some curves for diginegs. Seems to print quite quickly, taking only 4.5 minutes on a all-color black negative. I'm drying some paper to do a red colorized negative and a "pyro" colorized neg right now.

    Hmm, I wonder if I'm going to have an issue with speed, I can cook a pyro digital neg (CMYK=54,33,100,13) in about 3 minutes. The strips look great, though!

    My goal is to have my print up (palladium) in the challenge gallery by tomorrow night.

    Very cool! Congrats!

    I'll have to get you to walk me through the alt-process thing sometime. I'm strictly a silver gel guy.

    Kevin,
    Once I get my curves down I'll have you bring over a couple of images and we'll scan them in and make some palladium prints for you. One condition, though, you have to ignore the mess
