This is a bit off your topic, but your message shows an interest in
alternative photographic techniques, so I hope you'll indulge me.
I've just recently come across a brief mention, in an (art) printmaking
book, about the technique called "cliche verre," whereby you paint on glass
or clear acetate with transparent photo retouching dyes. You then use the
resulting 'slide' to produce an enlargement, or even a large contact print.
Are you familiar with this technique, and can you recommend a good book
(or perhaps even a good magazine article) on it? Do you know of fine arts
photographers currently using this technique with some success? Have you
run across anyone on the internet who's shown some interest in it?
I'd appreciate any tips you (or anyone else reading this) can give me on
