Handmade Fineart Prints Sale

I have been busy over the last weeks and did a lot of prints. Those prints are special, because they are 100% handmade fineart prints – albumen and sal prints – from wetplate collodion negatives.

If you like to buy a print, please write me a message or e-mail. I can also provide framing options of you want to frame the prints.

What are salted paper and albumen paper prints?

Both printing techniques were used extensively between 1840 until 1900 and are „printing out papers“. This means, that they darken during the exposure with UV light, other than B&W paper, that is a „develop out paper“. The procedure is nearly identical: the paper is salted with a mixture of gelatin and table salt for salt prints or albumen made from egg white and table salt for albumen paper. When the paper is dried, it is then sensitized with silver nitrate and printed out in UV light – the sun.

When the print is ready, it is processed through the many steps like washing, gold toning, fixing and washing. After the print is dried up it is waxed and then ready for display.

As you can see, each of the fineart prints demand about 2 hours of concentration to render the perfect resolution and therefore each one of them is 100% handmade.
