RE: how to develope fotos on stones (granit)?

Hi Nihal, welcome!

I haven't printed on stone before -> but my educated (or "if I were in
your place") guess would be as following:

You can use polyurethane wood finish / clear acrylic medium to seal the
stone, then coat it with gelatin and finally apply the sensitizer.

I hope you'll get more authoritative answers from much more experienced
persons in this field...
