You’ll begin by learning the basics of making wet collodion tintypes by process historian Mark Osterman in the famous Scully & Osterman Skylight Studio.

  • Carbon Transfer Printing November 4-6, 2013
    • Unlike silver prints, the carbon print image is formed with the same pigments used for centuries in artists’ oil colors. The key to making carbon prints is a sheet of pigmented gelatin called a “tissue.” These can be purchased, but are expensive and limited to only a handful of colors. In this workshop, you’ll get hands-on experience in how to make carbon prints in any color using watercolors available at your local art store.
    • Instructor: Mark Osterman.
    • $535.00 Price includes a $60 materials fee.
  • Opaltypes & Orotones November 18-22, 2013
    • The opaltype, or milk glass positive, is an image on a white glass plate. Used primarily for portraits from the late 1860s to the 1930s, originals are difficult to find. Orotones, popularized by Edward Curtis, are images on clear glass with highlights of gold-colored powder. Learn both of these rare processes in the same workshop.
    • Instructor: Mark Osterman.
    • $1,300.00 Price includes a $200 materials fee.
  • Framing Alternative Photographs December 9-11, 2013
    • Making a beautiful image with historic or alternative processes requires a lot of hard work, careful craftsmanship and a strong commitment to an aesthetic.
