Hi folks, Rachelle did a great job organizing the last round which is almost complete so I’m stepping up to the plate to start round 5.

I have copied the rules from round 4:


1. This is about sharing what can be done in lith printing with the emphasis on the process and not on the value of the prints themselves. I plan on sending my best attempts and I'm sure everyone else will do the same.

2. Everyone will be divided into groups of 3 or 4 people. So the maximum number of prints you will have to send is 3.

3. Print size and presentation will not have any requirements. Prints may be on fibre or RC paper. They may be unmounted, mounted, and/or matted. It's up to you.

4. The print may be straight lith, toned lith or bleach and redevelopment in lith.

5. The addition of explanatory notes is optional, but the recipients may appreciate an explanation of the process, such as paper type, lith developer type, dilutions etc.

6. The exchange is open to anyone who wants to print in lith. Experience is irrelevant although I will mix the groups to give a good mixture.

7. This is an international exchange, so be prepared to send your prints anywhere in the world.

8. Sign up period ends 23rd October 09.

9. Prints to be sent by the end of November. That provides over 5 weeks to make your prints after the sign up period ends.


So who wants to take part?

Regards,
Peter

So here are the groups which I have picked out randomly. I don’t think anyone has done a lith print exchange with anyone else in their group previously.

Please provide your postal address to the persons in your group and please try to send a print to each person by the end of November.

Group 1.
Jerevan
Angela di Mango
Paul Cocklin
thefizz

Group 2.

Group 3.

If anyone else wants to join in today, we can add them to groups 2 and 3.

Please post in the thread or pm me when you have sent or received prints so I can keep up to date.

Enjoy your lith printing,
Peter

Thanks for the reminder Peter! I've been working on a series of prints in lith this past week and hopefully will end up with a couple of good ones to offer in this exchange.

Received Mark's print today -- who knew motor oil could look so good? I like the lines in image, and the out of focus doorway in the background is a nice echo to the oil bottles. Great colour and grittiness also. Thanks Mark.

My prints are done -- I finished them this past weekend, they're just currently being flattened and should be out by the end of this week or early next week.

Received Martin's print yesterday. It was a little odd because it is the same paper and general subject matter I chose. Wonderful print.....nice composition and printing. Thanks!

Received Marks print this week. A lovely lith print very well printed. I like the subject matter, I agree with Rachelle "who knew motor oil could look so good?"

Was interesting in that Mark used the same paper as myself. The lith developers were different though which was interesting. Thanks for the print Mark very happy with it
