BROMOIL 101 PDF

Fenrigore Colder water requires longer soak times. His book can still be found used, but often commands a high price due to its scarcity. With variable contrast papers, Gene Laughter recommends using one contrast grade lower than normal for most prints. Remove the matrix from the inking area and place it on a flat surface. I have tried using factorial development, 10 is recommended in some old manuals, but ultimately I found that a development time of nromoil three minutes seems to be optimal with Dektol 1: Bromoilists found such papers more difficult to ink, so manufacturers began making special bromoil papers with non -superhardened emulsions and matte or semi-matte surfaces.

Voodoodal The copper sulfate solution is the bleaching agent, while the dichromate solution is the tanning agent which hardens the gelatin. This developer should be diluted with water for use. For bromoils I use 1: Amidol was and still is favored by many bromoilists because it causes no staining or tanning of the gelatin. After retiring I turned to photography as a serious hobby around Many old bromoilists state that you can use any developer but their favorite is an amidol formula—of which there are many.

The time in the stop bath is 30 seconds, with continuous agitation. Some workers even use Rodinal at 1: Solution 2 Tanning Bath. In the early days, unfortunately, I was working in somewhat of a vacuum. It is very helpful to watch an experienced bromoilist ink a matrix.

Traditional workers use a chamois for drying the print. Virtually any silver gelatin paper could be utilized in bromoi early days of bromoil, though the fast bromide papers were generally preferred. Again, wash the print thoroughly to remove residual fix—at least a half-hour with several complete changes of water. Venn probably did more research on bleaching and tanning of bromoils than anyone else.

In reality, water temperature is more important than soak time, but for beginners I recommend room temperature broomil a predetermined time. To start with, find the exposure that gives full detail in the most significant areas of the print. I have tried using factorial development, as is recommended in some old manuals, but ultimately I found that a development time of about three minutes seems to be optimal with Dektol 1: The swollen gelatin feels slippery, while the hardened gelatin feels bromoill.

This can vary from paper to paper. I then wash the print for an hour to remove the acid. When I did this, I learned to tell the difference between a matrix that has not been bleached enough and a matrix that has not brooil tanned enough.

These two prints inked identically—I could tell no difference between them. In addition to performing these procedures with the print swollen but surface dried, they may also be performed with the print underwater, or dry.

The high dilution of the developer or use of a compensating developer is necessary to keep the low values from blocking up. For normal prints, I use 1: This is because the bromoil process tends to increase contrast. Bromoil by Gene Laughter I then rinse both sides of the print under running water before continuing to the fix—this keeps the plain hypo from becoming too acidic. The optimal bleach time seems to be about 4 to 7 minutes, but some prints require 10 minutes or more to tan fully.

Today this is the most widely-used bleach formula, though there are a number of variations. Bromooil agitate continuously and allow the blacks in the image to emerge fully, which usually takes 50 to 60 seconds, then I remove the print to a tray of plain water where I let it sit with no agitation for 60 seconds.

See the Bromoil Reading Room at http: The fixed matrix has a slight grey-green color, caused by residual chromium oxide. The wet roller redistributes the ink very quickly—it increases contrast considerably brpmoil removes almost all ink from the high values. A very quick method for getting started with inking is to use a large boar bristle brush and ink the entire matrix until it is completely covered, bromiol no regard for high or low values. David Lewis recommends an acid bath after fixing, rather than before, as was often recommended by early bromoilists.

BROMOIL 101 PDF

Oil prints, bromoil and mediobrome are processes that belong to a same family: all of them are based on the well known principle that oil is repelled by water. The oil print process was first described in by A. Poitevin, and put into practice by G. Rawlins in It was C. Welborne-Piper, following through with a theory developped by E. Wall, who made the bromoil process work in

Remove the matrix from the inking area and place it on a flat surface. However, there are recommended starting brojoil that have not bromoip much in the century since the process was invented. Be careful not to crease the wet matrix, as this is very easy to do under water. Again, wash the print thoroughly to remove residual fix—at least a half-hour with several complete changes of water.
