Re: pt/pd question on size of prints
I usually print a 4x5 on something like an 11x14 sheet of paper, and then over mat, with a window slightly larger than the 4x5 image. I usually print an 8x10 on a 16x20 sheet of paper and do the same thing. Sometimes I print 3 inch square images, or 2- 1/4 inch square on an 11x14 sheet of paper, too. Lately, I've seen some prints that are small (not necessarily alt processes-- but small little paintings or other prints) that are on slightly larger sheets of paper than the print itself, and then the edges of the paper are torn or have a deckled edge-- and then that's mounted to something else- with no over mat. I like that look a lot. I've never dry-mounted my alt process prints, though. I always wondered about how smart that is. Anybody know how archival (or not) that might be?
Anyway, we're at the beach and had a huge paella for Thanksgiving. It was great. No turkey for us. :)
