At last managed to make something passable from the little bottle of silverprint liquid emulsion. Printed on thin drawing paper.

A very good effort. I look forward to seeing other work you produce using LE.


I would suggest using a slightly weightier paper though. I've tried various ones and e.g. W H Smiths own branded water colour paper, which whilst thick and heavy doesn't stand up to washing.


In the end I spent a bit more and got and tried various branded watercolour papers and they were much better all round.

I have often thought about having a go with L E. But always thought the cost to be be a bit prohibitive. However, now having seen the results, I will re consider. Thank you.
Cheers

The cost of the smallest bottle of LE is relatively high Paul, but I have had a bottle for over a year and have had so much enjoyment out of experimenting with it. So in those terms, it is well worth the money.


Also a very little goes a very long way. I take a small amount out in the darkroom and put it in a jam jar, which is then put into a larger vessel containing hot water. This way, the bottle of LE will keep for ages if put in the refrigerator rather than the whole bottle being 'melted down' each time, as I've read that some people do.

Thanks Terry. A bottle really does last for a long time! You should have a go at it Paul, it's much less responsive in every way than paper though
