Re: scrapey gum printing

Chris... loved seeing your stuff!  You have got to have a show in the northeast so I can see them in person!

Hi Marek,
They are separate prints completely, I was just showing them  as education.  I always photograph every one of my finished gums because they are never the same in the borders at the very least and I usually show my borders in my matting, but I thought the differences would be illustrative of how an image can change.
Embarassingly, on my old website I had a triptych of this one print called For Sale.  A buyer asked to buy it and when I asked which one, he didn't realize they were three separate prints. I lost that sale. So doing this backfires, even though I do have next to these prints the text that says "each".
Will you post your doubles that you talk about below? I just love seeing your stuff.

I like the double prints that show work in progress. Are you printing them for showing in that form or is it just for our education.
Last weekend I actually made some prints that are made to be displayed that way. Two pictures on one pice of paper showing single and double gum layers. These were duotones printed from a single negative.

Are you going to call these scrapey prints Brillotypes?

Best Wishes,

Dear All,
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!!!
