Using a canvas press : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

Sorry, this isn't a large format question but I am a large format person & I'm sure that someone out there will be able to help. I've aquired a heated press. The press area is 25"x25". I understand that the previous owner used it for producing canvas finish prints and I would appreciate any advice on how to use it and what materials are needed. If anyone also knows where to buy the materials (in the U.K.) this would also be a big help. It will be used for colour prints and for RC mono prints. Many thanks,

Garry Edwards

The canvas part of this response is pure conjecture, but it sounds as though they may have used some sort of metal plates with a canvas pattern embossed on them to cause an impression on the paper. -- In the meantime, if it is a press with two flat metal surfaces and they are good and clean and smooth it should make an excellent dry mount press.
