Fresson = Echague Look.

Hi All,
             Jose Ortiz Echague, undoubtedly,  though the galactic amount of  successful prints he made by Fresson methods,  has become almost synonymous with this Direct Carbon process.
               Other  well known photographers such as Sheila Metzner had their pictures made by the Fressons. Echague, himself,  worked with the Direct Carbon paper which was sold to him.  The Fressons gave Echague the formulae for the emulsions together with the machine to mass produce the paper for himself  since they discontinued making it for commercial sales.  One wonders how  the Fressons continued to make the paper, as they still do to this very day for their own use, if they never had another  machine or alternative method standing by..............
I am dabbling with plans to make a machine tho' most of my  Direct Carbon coating methods have so far been successfully  done, by hand, without a machine. 
Marek seems to be achieving good results, also,  without a machine.
Hey Ho. The quest goes on +on + on + on + on.............
