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, and 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.
