Re: copper prints was: Anyone doing autochrome?

I emailed Jim and hopefully he will share his process shortly with us. As far as Bernie goes, I have emailed him twice and his email address that Jan posted is defunct so I don't know how to get a hold of him.

I worked a bit on copper printing,after Judy showed me a promising article on it by Chris Patton. I wrote my results up for Post Factory. Chris Patton has a web asite up at: http://pinhole.stanford.edu/cp.htm, and he has also some info on my results at: http://silverghost.stanford.edu/copper/index.html

Good luck,

(much deleated here) Then, this guy also did a copper sulfate print which
was really quite beautiful, reminiscent of Bernie Bertridge's cupric print
at APIS.  I think it might have been Obernetter's formula, or something he
devised himself. So that could be done in tandem with a cyanotype demo--a
pink print and a blue print.  And copper sulfate is cheap.  If you want, I
could email him and ask his formula.
I would love to know Bernie's formula/method and any other copper method.
