Bob,

Michael said that the prints were not on aluminum. That does not preclude the possibility that the paper is temporarily affixed to aluminum or some other rigid support and then separated once the printing is completed. I believe this is the method used by Keith Taylor in the large color gum prints.

getting these separations*or as I would describe as detail and then accent films would be quite easy on a Image Setter or Light Jet.
