Charlie Waitesaid of Platinum Etching:"Landscape photography is about discovery. I believe that photographers can only fully relish the rewards of their efforts whenthe image isseen in the form of a print. The paper used for thatprintmust be as carefully considered as the image made. Paper technology changes with time and ongoing advances mean that photographers need to look regularly at their paper choice, rather than automatically playing safe with an old favourite. DiscoveringPlatinum Etching 285has been a revelation to me and has proved a vital tool in my ongoing quest to match pre-visualisation with end result.
Compatible with both dye and pigment inks.
