Seashell, this print is a gold-toned kallitype with metal leaf. Handmade alternative process photograph. This moody print has metallic highlights that are reflected across the image when light hits it.
Printing process: Kallitype is an iron and silver basic photographic process done directly onto a natural fiber paper of tissue weight. During processing the print is toned replacing the iron with more archivally stable gold. The metal leaf has been adhered with acid-free metal sizing to the reverse side of the paper and can be seen through the paper as sparkles and metallic highlights throughout the image. All of the printing steps have been done by hand by the artist.
