Platinum & Palladium Printing Process

Platinum/Palladium Printing produces a beautiful cool tone or warm tone image on fine watercolor paper or 100% cotton rag printing paper.
 
The artist uses a brush or coating rod to apply a light sensitive emulsion to the paper, then a contact negative is exposed under intense ultraviolet light.
 
All work can be conducted under normal tungsten or fluorescent lighting, so no safelight is necessary. All of our kits contain the necessary chemistry to make 25-35 8x10 images.
 
Here is a demo video for Making a Platinum Palladium Print. 
 
For these kits, we recommend using 100% cotton rag paper, such as Arches PlatineRevere Platinum, and Hahnemuhle Platinum Rag

    New and updated Ziatype kit! Named for the Anasazi sun symbol, the Ziatype is a palladium Printing Out Process (POP) based on the work of Pizzighelli.  The process requires no developer, as the image forms completely during exposure. Introduced by Richard Sullivan in 1997, the Ziatype is suitable for printing a wide range of negatives due to it's self-masking POP nature.

    Ziatype allows for a wide variety of colors (pink, purple, blue, some green) and tones (warm or cool) that can be achieved through chemical controls and humidity levels and it is easy to tell by inspection when the exposure is ready.
