Photography - Gum Bichromate

Sunday 02 August 2020

Overview

Similar to the cyanotype process, the gum bichromate print (or gum print) is exposed in the sun and developed in tap water. Unlike cyanotypes, a gum print is not restricted to one colour.

In this six hour workshop with Raimond de Weerdt from Art of Blue you will learn: An overview of this fascinating 19th century photographic print process; Preparation of the gum mixture, creating a test strip to determine exposure, manipulating the print in its wet state; and How to create finished gum bichromate prints.

Each participant will go home with a number of unique visually stunning gum prints to be used for wall decorations or cards.

Introductory class suitable for beginners.
