I have uploaded 2 recent images, 2 comparisons each, to my Family of Origin
series at the URL below. Both show the more scrapey process I have been
working with in gum. Also, the Sunbather image shows the severe damage that
occurs with slides that are wet, molded, and stored horribly. I chose to
print those in all their glory. No mold or dust or scratches are removed and
images are printed "as is" except for the scraping process.I bet Gawain
Weaver has seen a few of these in his tenure at Eastman House. I personally
find them fascinating in their natural desecration.
What I use to scrape with which is an incredible little tool is a teeny
slanted brush called the 1/8 Connoisseur 066 W-Taklon Scrubber. It will
take off anything...
PS and Gregg Kemp, I wholeheartedly agree--this list is the BOMB! Gees, I
wished **I** lived near Diana and she'd lend me her UVBL too!!!
