When hand-coloring any of the hand-coated alt-photo processes, what are
the important things to do, use or remember?
For instance, should some kind of "pre-coat" be used to seal the
absorbent paper surface before applying the color? And are Marshall oils
the best way to go or are other methods known to work better?
I'm not expecting a full primer on the topic, just interested in the
obvious pitfalls (any of which would NOT be obvious to someone like me
who's never done it) before experimenting blindly.
Lastly, which of the books on hand-coloring are good ones for general
skills in this area? Do any of the books deal with hand-coated papers or
are they all assuming you're starting with a gelatin-coated silver paper?
Thanks for any and all help and suggestions!
