Dee – a Bromoil print

Remember these 12×16 contact prints from a deteriorated collodion glass plate? Printed on Ilford multigrade Warmtone FB semi matt paper.

The plate was made in 2014. It hadn’t been varnished and has sat in a studio drawer in a glassine sleeve ever since.

There were some spares that I bleached for bromoil a few months ago. The Ilford MG warmtone paper had worked well for me in the past but the last few times its been disappointing. No matter what soak times and temps I use.

I’ll have to try it on the Kentmere Kenthene paper instead as I think the image would work well as a bromoil print.
