homemade gelatin printing on glass using alternative processes.

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

I'm fairly interested in doing either cyanotypes or kallitypes on glass.

Unfortunately, neither of these processes have any inherent adhesion to glass, do they? My initial reaction is no.

Therefore, I was wondering if anyone had any experience using agar-agar or other gelatins and simply throwing in the emulsion chemicals and silver into the gelatin, heating it up enough to melt the gelatin and then pouring your own emulsion onto a large glass plate?

You should address that question to the Alt Photo Mail List at http://www.usask.ca/lists/alt-photo-process/. You will have to join the list to post a question.
