Re: Hand collotype in process

Its my understanding that for the Collotype process many impressions are required to condition the plate before a finished print can be pulled. This conditioning is to match up the water level in the plate and the ink thickness and condition the receiving and release of the ink in a fashion that produces a clean image. May not be the best if one is expecting a short run of prints.
