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.
