A quick look at me making a tri color gum bichromate print. Sorry about the awful narration.

Hi everyone, I hope this video has helped out a bit. Now that I am 7 months older and wiser than I was when I made this video, I’ve got two big points I want to go back on:
1. I HIGHLY recommend you do not use laser printer transparency. The toner always let the UV through, resulting in the prints requiring shorter exposures / more pigment, which then resulted in staining.
2. I would also recommend against using graphite, and instead use black watercolor for the black layer. Using graphite as a pigment tends to make the emulsion very weak and streaky.
I hope to make an updated, more in-depth tutorial video about the process in the coming weeks.
