Reading Response 8

The Platinum/ Palladium Process pg 293-300

This chapter was particular helpful. While creating my platinum prints I had metallic looking areas in my darker values and Ken and I both were unable to identify the issue. However, it appears this effect is called Bronzing. This is a result of either dampness in the paper or of an inappropriate negative density for the process. Another reason could be that the sensitizer was puddled up on the paper and drying too thickly. This is probably what happened to one of my prints.
