    could you explain your version of the process? are you using gold leaf or gold powder? do you tone your image first? i've been working on some orotones but haven't been satisfied with my finished images, any advice?
    thanks.

    hi gayle,

    the method i'm using with these pieces actually makes them more faux-rotones than the true orotone process that curtis used. I am using a lith film - printing it as a positive image - then mounting that film to a sheet of glass that has been gold leafed. The resulting image is quite mirrored which is a look i wanted, but if you want something a little more matte, then gold pigment will work best. The best way is to mix some pigment with a clear gelatin solution --- forget the banana oil...

    if you are interested and are in the los angeles area, they will be on view again via c4 gallery in hollywood (c4gallery.com)
