The VanDyke

These few images are some of the first from my recent printing journey. They are very time intensive:
Hand-coated watercolor paper (coated twice) with VanDyke Brown solution - dry that. Make a proper negative using transparency paper; let that dry. Once everything is ready to go together you will expose the paper and negative together and probably make 4 prints in a day. Hope your negative was spot on...
Here are a few that are lovely. Each printing will produce a slightly different result depending on many factors. These were uploaded using my iPhone - good scan later today. But you get the idea.
