These things

Last night I did a rough comparison of Foma MG131 paper and Ilford MGWT fiber paper in second pass lith. Not surprisingly, the Foma paper gives a slightly more lith look to the final result while the Ilford paper can sometimes look like a regular print. Here’s two examples.

Foma MG 131

I pulled this print a little early which gives it that partial brown tone. I like the colors and the happy accident of the chemical contamination.

Ilford MGWT fiber

This one almost looks like the original print, just with some mottling in the background.

Things are redeveloping

Last night I tried a new process: lith redevelopment. I took some prints that I had done using standard developer, bleached them back, and redeveloped them in the lith. I like the softer brown tones I get compared to the strong yellow with regular lith.
