This morning I got a start on my Albumen solution, mix a bit of this and that with egg white, time in the fridge (24 hrs), sieve it tomorrow, more time in the fridge (7 days) then coat some paper.
Dry the paper, re-coat with a second coating of albumen, dry again, prior to printing coat with a silver nitrate solution, let it dry, then contact print a negative onto the paper (test strip at this stage).
Cross fingers, wash, fix and tone as required – dry and i should be able to assess the test strip.
Repeat process until it works, then try printing a photograph…..
This is the good stuff nobody else is going to teach you, trial error and a full vocabulary of F’s & C’s along the way.
