Re: powdered albumen
I'm interested in making albumen prints from 5x8 ortho litho film. I just fixed the bellows on my Scovill Waterbury and would like to use a Nineteenth Century printing technique to make the prints. I have seen several recipes and have found Richard Farber's book, Historical Photographic Processes very helpful. The solution calls for 500 ml of albumen (15 extra large eggs). I hate to waste the yolks. I found a few references in the FAQ archives from 6/97, evenly split on the usefulness of the dehydated egg whites. Does anyone have any further experience?
