I am currently exploring ways of combination printing, like gum over
platinum, and I would like to ask whether there are other people practicing
such methods, and, above all, which effects, or artistic ends they try to
Steichen tried, as far as I know, to get, among other things, color effects.
"Spirits of salts" mentions the shadows were emphasized in old platinum
prints by this method, and Heinrich Kuehn writes that tonal values can be
grouped together in a platinum image by placing a layer of gum over them
(for him, the richness of midtimes was something distracting, which
deserved to be counteracted).
What is it you are after? I ask this to get an idea of the artistic
possibilities such printing methods.
