inkAID Iridescent Precoat

Product Review (submitted on December 14, 2013):
I've always been deeply in love with albumen prints. Those rich browns and warm whites attract me as nothing else. A few years ago at the Geo Eastman House I took a course in albumen printing. I loved the process but failed in egg cracking 101. It was then that I started to look for an alternative to albumen. After much experimentation I went back to my printmaking days. Albumen has a warm tone and gold is used in the process. I used the inkAID Iridescent Gold coating as part of the process. This product has never failed to provide the warm gold tones I need for the faux albumen prints. In a recent show I had most viewers could not believe that the prints weren't albumen. All it took was the Iridescent Gold and the right curves in photoshop to create the feeling of an albumen print.
