	Thank You
	Art Chaklis or Dave Soemarko  are the solution for the carbon Direct
but it is also a secret
	The carbon direct is a very good secret
	My choise is the carbon Transfer process, it is no a secret

	I would think so but have never done it myself.

	Perhaps Art Chaklis will comment on the feasibility of this.

	Ortiz Echague does appear to have had problems with the coating
	machine. When I was in Madrid in the mid-80s doing my research for a
	book on pictorial photography in Spain I met a member of the Real
	Sociedad Fotografica who had worked with Echague on many occasions
	his laboratory. He told me that Echague had experienced many
	difficulties in getting a good coating, and that the number of
	that he actually made with papers from the machine were very small
	compared to the number he made with papers manufactured by the
	Fresson family.
