Wet plate dog tags anyone?

Richard popped into the studio this evening to sit for a couple of plates, when they are dry I’ll copy them and post them up.
In the meantime how about some wet plate dog tags?

I picked up 200 off Feepay so just 198 more to go .

These were two test plates in the old Mamiya 35mm camera. Four seconds at f2.8, and then varnished with Ana Tornel’s Shellac. That didn’t work too well on these so might try Ren Wax next time.

Placement of the bottom of the dog tag at the edge of the film window gets rid of the black line you can see in one of the tags.

Quite like doing these, a little but of fun and will start offering these at events/demonstrations.

Thanks again Richard
