My first adventure in the world of alternative processes

Well, almost first, I’ve done lith printing before, but this is my very first Gum Bichromate print. I’m not yet convinced if I like it or not, but it’s for sure that the scan doesn’t do my print justice…..

Maybe the aquarelle paper I used was too rough? If you can see anything or give me some advice, I will be most grateful!

Here it goes…..

And here is the “original” scan from the negative

  1. Hi Marie, I like the original as well. The roughness of the paper is evident i the print but whether or not you like that is a matter of taste so to speak. Anyway the fun is in the process.

    • Thanks a lot Mike!
      Yes, you are right, and I know that I often have to let images be for a long long while before I like them myself, and this one is brand new, just dried…
      But it was sure fun to se it happen…. And more to come, hehe….

  2. Looks great, I find when I try anything new that I’m never sure what to expect so the results always leave me a little underwhelmed…….until I put it down, walk away and return to it later. On my return I always pronounce it the greatest achievement of my life 🙂 . I’m living your print here!

    • Ohh, you are most kind!
      It’s the same for me, I have to have distance to my work, then it always looks so much better.
      Thank you very much! 🙂

    • Thank you very much Heather! 🙂
      I was surprised when I saw that it looks almost like some kind of fabric… I like it too, but I think I must go for a lighter kind of colour next time with this paper…
