Ziatype prints exhibit rich dark tones and virtually unlimited color combinations from cool to warm. Zia's are a variation on traditional palladium process but offer many advantages in ease of use, and greater flexibility & potential for experimentation than platinum/palladium printing.
The first part of this class focuses on creating appropriate negatives for the Ziatype process and curves will be shared. After negatives have been generated, we will calculate drops of chemistry and mix the sensitizer, followed by a demonstration of coating technique. Then practice prints will be made using the coated paper which will be sandwiched with the negative in your contact printing frame and exposed. You will learn to process your exposed prints.
Additional topics covered will include adjusting for contrast with chemistry and warm or cool tone effects.
