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 +
