I have tried to use digital negatives for argyrotypes and gum prints. Terrible
results, although I just love Mark Nelsons e-book that describe his Precision
Digital Negative system. Because of it I have finally got around to learn some
PS. Thank you Mark!
I have posted a scan of a test:
This is a test using Mike Wares Argyrotype chemistry
(, some Saunders paper, Mark Nelsons CDR
Palette printed on Pictorico OHP using a Canon 9000s equiped with Canon inks. A
Stouffer 21-step wedge was partly covered by the Pictorico film during
>From this and other tests, I have understod that the Canon inks does not have
the UV-density that is required for making digital negatives for alt
As I’d rather hold on to my Canon 9000s, the question to the list is:
What inks can I use that will work in my 9000s and for making digital negs?
Will a set of grayscale inks do the job?
