As far as I know , he was still working on his book. I don't know how much he had put together until the time of his illness.. I shall print out your e-mails and bring them with me on Friday. If it is any help I wrote a four page article on the Temperaprint process for the British Journal of Photography in the issue dated 19.06.2002. I don't know how you access the index from the states but I have a copy that I could e-mail if you are interested. The only major change in my working methods has been the switch from paper negatives made translucent with mineral oil to diginegs which are easier to use and make but I must say I miss the smell of oil from the negatives. Using oiled negs and an egg tempera process made for an interesting olfactory experience. Hellena

  Hellena,

  Does Peter have a book for purchase? In the info that is on alt photo his text suggests a advanced section of his compendium. I have not had success tracking that down. Any info on that? Likewise when you see him please forward my email. I would be willing to correspond even with snail mail should that be the only thing available to him for a bit.

  Tim

    I am not very good technically in my work so when you talk about working out curves, I must admit that I am pretty inexperienced in that respect. I just go for something visually acceptable as there are so many vagaries in the process, it is difficult to be extremely precise. Exposure times for me very much depend on the uv light source. I use a machine developed for making printing circuit board in the electronic industry which combines vacuum and timer together and is pretty accurate. I also do not work any bigger than A3. I have in the past done Temperaprint on polished marble and welsh slate. However I only did a single coat because of the impossibility of getting correct registration with two coats. I used some pretty high density foam from a furniture making place and one of those vacuum bags that you use a vacuum cleaner to remove the air and create the contact between the printer and the substrata. It worked quite well on the marble as an almost photographic surface and differently on the slate because of the surface irregularities.

      Hellena,

      Good to hear that someone else exists out there that has some experience. I am starting form scratch so have not yet gotten a gallery quality print. I am still working out curves and exposure times. I am extremely interested in chatting with someone who has first hand experience with the process on ceramic or stone. That is what I am pursuing next as soon as I get a touch better results with basic printing. Any tips form you expereinced will be greatly appreciated

      Tim

        Yes, we are still out there. There are a few probationers of Temperaprint still going. While we are not as good as Peter, we are still functioning and making prints. Most of us are in the U.K. but Barbara Maloney is an American currently residing in Germany. She has an article in the November issue of www.alternativephotographycom. All discussion welcome . I am going to see Peter on Friday and can pass on any questions and hopefully he will get access to the web soon. Hellena

          Kate,

          Do you have contact info for Peter? I am curious whether his school will carry on once he is on the mend.

            Hi Tim, Peter Frederick has been very ill, and is in the process of
            recuperating.

            I've just started using a modified version of his process with some success.
            The advantage is that it's way quicker to produce a print than gum - the
            disadvantage is (for me) that it produces a much different image quality.
            I'm just getting my head around the differences but I certainly find it
            simple and effective after gum, but then again it's probably because I have
            already done gum!!!

            Have a look at the archives - there was some discussion a couple of weeks
            ago and there are certainly a few much more knowledgeable people on this
            list than me!

            Cheers
            Kate
