no you misunderstand--I'm after simple color portraits--this capstaff method showed that it's possible with 2 colors..3 colors you can't put together--synthize--without a mirror of some kind..the 2 you can just put 2 sheets together--simple--and a 2 color camera is mucho simpler than a 3 color.
so I'm only trying to get a 2 color system working--I doubt anyone would be able to replicate capstaff--who know WHAT he used exactly--no point in trying to guess...best to guess at something similar with the materials that you have at hand.
and any 2 color can work--and maybe bETTER than capstaff's choice--first thing is to see what you can work with--so I gotta find what red and green I get...THEN you figure out the exposure and filtration for the balance and that's it...that's the easy part--the hard part is getting a repeatable color toning process...get that and the rest is just matching and fine tuning.
so the first thing is to see what can be toned...so that's what I'm a doing...
lemme tell you....it AINT easy.....but when I get it, then it's done for good...
