Is there anyone on the list with experience doing autochrome printing?
Are you familiar with this process? I'm asking as it is a glass plate covered with colored potato starch grains.
The grains are pressed together under a multi ton press then the back of these grains is coated with a photo emulsion
- this plate is then developed as a positive after it has been exposed in camera...
The final result is a color transparency...
So the chances of anyone doing this themself w/o a research grant are small.
However- it would not be impossible to contact print onto color photo paper through a multi colored screen made in an inkjet printer.
I also have a simple digital method in photoshop that looks very similar to an autochrome.
If this interests anyone I can write this up...
