Carbon Transfer Printing
This workshop will give you an overview of the basic printing process of carbon transfer and you will be able to make some very unique prints.
Carbon transfer is an extremely versatile and complex printing process that can produce black and white as well as color prints. What makes carbon transfer so special is that virtually everything can be used as a pigment, such as ash, mud, gold dust, dried flowers, or spices. We will work with high quality water color pigments that are very stable under UV light. The image quality of carbon transfers can be outstanding in terms of detail resolution, sharpness, and colors. But a unique feature of carbon transfers is that they form a relief effect that adds a completely new textural dimension to the image.
Because of the potential complexity of the topic, our focus will be the actual printing process so we can use our limited time to achieve maximum results.
Carbon transfer printing is so much more than a reproductive photo process because there are infinite possibilities for manipulating the image. You don’t necessarily have to print a photo – collages or drawings are also very interesting as a carbon transfer.
