Thank you for sharing. Very informative.

I have no experience with it myself, but I do know that the large format HP printers have special settings to print negatives, and the curves are made by measuring the positive contact print with the build in iOne device.
There are settings for printing on Platinum and for printing on silver halide.

Having tortured myself with both Mike Ware's and the more traditional Pt/Pd chemistry for some time, I am in awe of Carl's work. I'll keep on trying... For goo prints in this medium, it isn't just the mechanics. The subject matter is very important too!

Jim, I'm familiar with the Piezo system, in fact I did a couple days of cooperative consult with Jon back in, um...so long ago it was still Iris printing, but have followed the advances. But I wanted to find a system that would work with stock equipment. As an aside, while I love the digital prints from my HP Z3200 (and its incredible economical ink consumption) I decided to go with Epson because one reason to learn this was to teach, and if I worked out a system on the production-grade HP, who would I teach it to? The installed base is essentially all Epson, and not 24". So I really wanted a procedure that could use an Epson 3880 in stock configuration and produce results I liked. It took a while, but I got what I wanted.
