Hi Jake,

The print is four layers from three paper negatives:  1st coat
magenta, then yellow, then cyan, then another layer using the magenta
negative with higher contrast coating of burnt umber.  Everything is
registered with an old icepick and I use thumbtacks on the sides of
the half-inch wood to keep it all together until I plop a heavy piece
of coffee-table glass (30 bucks at Hobby Lobby) on top of it under the
NuArc light source.  Developed conventionally by floating face down in
a tray of water.  Using a hair dryer to hasten the process, the entire
print was completed Saturday.

Thanks for your comments!
