Those of you who feel, like myself, that there is
interesting work to be done in discovering ways of making D/C prints
which are similar in appearance to the Carbondir prints of Jose
Ortiz Echague The following sentence, taken from the translation,
previously posted, may suggest more than a simple directive as to a
suitable base coating:-
''The paper for direct carbon is made of a thin layer which is GENERALLY
gelatine ; ''
The meaning of the original Spanish word translated as GENERALLY may
not suggest that this layer is specifically gelatine.
Anyone closely acquainted with Spanish might construe something more
enlightening and helpful. But then many of Echagues clues are of this nature
where a slight change in understanding would produce
a surprising change in results.
ever. Happy hols.
