ABOUT PLATINIUM/PALLADIUM PRINTING AND CYANOTYPE:

Printing in palladium is acknowledged as the summit of alternative processes – images formed in totally permanent ‘noble’ metal. Cyanotype printing over palladium or platinum photographs is an effective method of using colour to built depth to enrich shadow areas. The processes are made for each other, both techniques are permanent and the warm tonal values of platinum/ palladium ‘noble’ metal. .
