A chrysotype portrait printed in my hotel room the night before the presentation in Santa Fe. Just 3 drops of 1% C added to the ammonium ferric oxalate! Had to clear it in 2% sodium sulfite first. Original is much smoother than my scanner can render.

Fountain, National Gallery of Art. Washington, DC. Electrumtype Kary process, which I invented over the weekend of May 2 through 6. It is 1 drop of gold and 5 of amm ferric ferrous oxalate. I "developed" out the weak gold image in 4% silver nitrate. Clearing required removing the iron  and fixing the silver in hypo.  The final print is electrum: a mixture of gold and silver.   It's a very beautiful yet very inexpensive process; I guess about $1.00.
