I have not used it on glass but on art paper I found if you follow the instructions precisely (I used the FotoSpeed product) you will get a result. I used a brush for coating and applied two coats to obtain a good cover and a slight contrast boost.

What strikes me as a possibility is using the liquid emulsion to produce the kind of picture on canvas that is tacked onto a wooden frame a la a painting to hang on a wall. I have only ever seen these done in inkjet using digital files or presumably a scanner but I have never been sure if it is canvas or some kind of art paper similar to what you use Neil. If there is an art paper or something similar that is strong enough to be tacked to the sides of a wooden frame to form a picture then you'd have a successful analogue alternative.

I suppose that if there is an art canvas surface then this would be ideal

Mike,

We are talking about liquid emulsion on glass here so this is a bit off-topic but since you have asked - you can use liquid emulsion on more or less anything provided it can survive the normal wet process.

With paper you need to use a hot-pressed paper such as Fabriano Artisico HP which will not fall apart during the normal wet process. There are many other HP papers of course - but I use Fabriano HP.

Neil.

There are other Hot Pressed (HP) papers that are worth trying but Fabriano HP is a good one.

There should be no problem with passing glass through the various chemicals as long as the dried emulsion stays put. It may be worth following the advice for ceramics (as a starting point) if glass is not covered in the instructions.

Neil.

I get very very bored, for reasons known, I achieve what I try then move on

THIS really is going to be something I try on patterned glass, that bumpy, textured stuff, cloth, metal etc, so, will be a while, get paid in a month so I "WILL" get some and see what happens

I just hope I don't end up throwing it out of the window.................. YES it happens
