Casein (milk) Printing - Ellie Young - 2 Days



Casein printing is a permanent inexpensive printing process closely related to gum bichromate printing. The Casein process is not "better" than the Gum Bichromate just different enough to make it interesting and worthwhile to learn. It allows multiple colours through the addition of layers and can be used with other print processes. Every layer can be manipulated.

There is a high degree of artist control in this beautiful print making process.
During the workshop you will create a number of images. The following issues and many others will be covered:

  • CMYK negatives for control of colour and contrast
  • Alignment / registration of negatives
  • Ways of coating the paper
  • Different colour pigments that can be used
  • How to build up and control colour during processing


In 2000 Ellie attained the National Gallery of Victoria Trustee Award 2000 for her work in Gum Bichromate printing. Since 1994 she has been practicing and studying the art craft and science of ‘alternative’ photographic print processes
