Paula Marriner, from New Zealand, contributes with her chemigrams, a process where chemicals is simply poured into an image.

Juan Miguel Justado, a Spanish artist, adds images in a variety of processes: cyanotypes, bromoils, gum oil, gum bichromates, carbon, salted papers and kallitypes.

 

Satista prints - Marek Matusz tells us how to make Satista prints, and shows the difference with toned and untoned images. Very interesting for experienced Platinum and Palladium printers.

 
 
 

Polaroid Transfers: A Complete Visual Guide to Creating Image and Emulsion Transfers
Kathleen Thormod Carr

Highly recommended

UK/Europe: Buy 'Polaroid Transfers' from Amazon.co.uk

USA: Buy 'Polaroid Transfers' from Amazon.com

Highly recommended for anyone interested in Polaroid Transfers. Film, papers and tools. Well-written instructions will allow you to master the technique. The book will most likely pay for itself in the saved cost of film and paper. For those not interested in the process, there are still many examples of images - as an art for simply viewing.
