Hi all,

I thought I would finally put in practice what I have been sorting out over the last few months, just made a batch of the solutions up, here is my setup:

Watercolour paper
Phillips UV face tanner
Currently used printed image which is then oiled and dried

Exposure is around 30-40 minutes using poundland box frames as contact holders

I don't currently have any inkjet transparencies but its next on the list but it shows you can simply print out an image and oil it to get a good enough negative to use for printing - would just take slightly longer to expose, but much cheaper than inkjet transparencies.

Contact frame:

Print (note that this is taken on my DSLR, the lines you see on the background are due to the printer needing a clean!)
