Now it is up! (Hand collotype in process)

Hi everyone,

Here you go. It is about 10 minute long. Especially, take a look at how they coat plates.

As you can see in the clip, everything is analog at this studio. Enjoy!

I am not sure if this is appropriate question or not.

Does anyone know where would be a great website to share the video
file of collotype process on internet? The clip is about 360MB. Is
YouTube the best way to go?

and how do you people coat emulsions on glass plates? freehand with
a comb (rather thin coating) or with some kind of frame.
Look at the link Tom posted:  http://www.phototypie.net
Even with failed high school French from half a century ago I figured
out a lot by going through the long set of photos and discription on
the site. My question, is why do they use glass? A less fragile sub
would seem a lot less trouble. Is there something about glass that
creates a better bond or do they flash it from the back to help bond
it? It seems that a metal plate could be grained the same way just as
zinc plates are for lithography.
