Vandyke Brownprint Process
Van Dyke Brownprint is a process developed by Arndt & Troos in 1889. It uses Silver Nitrate and Ferric Ammonium CItrate (Brown Flakes) to create a monochromatic "Van Dyke Brown" print that develops in water and fixes in a gentle bath of hypo fix (sodium thiosulfate).
Our Van Dyke solution comes ready to go as a liquid, already mixed up for you! The kit comes with the hypo fix, everything you need in one!
For true archival permanence, Vandyke, Salted Paper, Kallitypes, Albumen and Argyrotype prints should be toned. Our gold toning kit produces a cool image with blue/magenta highlights. Tones approximately 50 8"x10" prints.
Gold toning kit contains:
500 ml - .2% Gold Chloride Solution
500 ml - 2% Ammonium Thiocyanate
Produces a cool image with blue/magenta highlights. Will tone Salted Paper, Vandyke, Kallitype, Albumen and Argyrotype prints.
A single solution coated on your paper creates a very rich, dark brown image.
Vandyke is a printing-out process that darkens as it is exposed to UV light. Our kit will make about fifty 8x10" prints.
