Re: Ambidextrous print coating

As the old saying goes. Everyone is born right handed but only the truly gifted can over come the handy cap.
Your prints have this devilish look now.

Left-handed coating was a success yesterday! The gum layers were all
coated with my left hand. Still haven't tried palladium coating with
the off-hand yet, though.



Both are 6.75" x 12" gum over palladium prints (the palladium was
coated before I hurt myself).

loris the glass rod does seem to be an interesting idea as that's a
technique I've never tried before. i was just curious if others had
any advice i could mull over while enjoying cabin fever. i have to
wait until my sutures are out so i can mix up chemicals from powder,
but i am getting faster typing with my left hand =)

OTOH, if you can't manage to do it evenly with the reverse hand /
brushes and don't mind the different look you'll get, then you can try
coating by using glass rods / puddle pushers. I imagine it can be much
easier than using a brush...

I wish you a quick and full recovery BTW.
