Handmade emulsion the quick and dirty way. In this one-day workshop, experience a taste of 19th century darkroom magic and create an unwashed B+W silver gelatin emulsion on 16mm film. Handmade emulsions have a distinct and wonderful look to them that cannot be duplicated by other means and provide a wonderful basis for nearly endless experimentation. Topics include: emulsion creation and handling; recipes; film coating techniques; processing; troubleshooting; resources. Participants will gain an understanding of the elementary silver gelatin emulsion chemistry and will get to expose and process a section of handmade emulsion. See the results by the end of the session! All chemicals, supplies and workbook are included. Come prepared to get dirty.
