More Lith Experiments

February 07, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Having bought some new paper, and also having rediscovered some old which I had not used for a while. I tried yesterday a few little experiments with lith developer.

Ilford Multigrade Art paper on a Hahnemuhle base is clearly a lovely paper for normal printing but suspecting it had a bit of warmth I decided to try it in the lith dev. It did develop in about the same time (5 or 6 minutes) that I would have expected from more the papers I have normally used for this process. The images is less warm than I might have hope for but it has a certain equality that makes further experimentation likely.

Some Foma 331 RC paper had been hiding on my shelves for a while. Normally I would not think of using RC paper for lith work but I had a go and the results were better than I had expected.

Both photos come from a Missenden ASG shoot at Oxford in November 1992 - which I had also more or less forgotten!
