Kallitype- Bulow Cabbage Palm
A Kallitype Print- A process patented by W.W.J. Nichol in 1889. An iron/silver process. A sheet of watercolor paper is coated with a silver nitrate and ferric oxalate solution. It is allowed to dry. The print is made under sunlight or other UV light by contact print a full sized negative.I use a 8 x 10 digital negative that I make. After exposure the print is developed in sodium citrate, then cleared in EDTA, next a gold toner is used, after toning the print is fixed in sodium thiosulfate, then washed and allowed to dry. Kallitypes are know for their wonderful warm tones. When properly developed and toned they are sometimes indistinguishable from Platinum prints.
