Get an introduction to Palladium printing, which was invented in 1873. The process produces photographs of unrivaled beauty and permanence. Images are printed by coating a light sensitive solution containing palladium onto archival paper, then exposing a negative in direct contact with the paper under intense ultraviolet light. Students will spend one class session making negatives for contact printing using Photoshop. Each student will make 10 or more 8 x10 prints.


Each student will recieve a supply kit as part of their registration. Additional paper (Arches Platine paper) and lab printing will be required for projects, but costs will be dependant on size of artworks.
