Basic Collodion Technique: Ambrotype & Tintype by France Scully and Mark Osterman

Model: 18622
Manufacturer: Misc

Low Stock

This is a complete rewrite of the The Wet Plate Process, A Working Guide, 2011, now titled Basic Collodion Technique: Ambrotype & Tintype. The original manual, written in 1994, was 25 pages and featured the first complete instructions of the collodion process to a modern audience. This version is 56 pages, has more basic theory, a color chart and a valuable trouble shooting section titled Out of the Fog, that is worth the purchase price alone!

This updated manual is to get started on wet-plate collodion, including equipment, supplies needed, sources, formulas and more importantly, the theory to modify them for specific working conditions. Think of this as the difference between learning a few phrases of a language and the grammar to construct any sentence you want!
