Description
This is the original process William Henry Fox Talbot announced in a paper read before the Royal Society on 31st January 1839. His method was to make Sun Pictures or Photogenic Drawings by spreading on a quantity of the nitrate of silver onto a sheet of paper and then leaving the paper in the sunshine. This kit, complete with three stabilisers, will allow you to replicate his process. It takes between 15 and 30 minutes in sunshine to make a print. In the kit you get 5 sheets of Canelletto 8x10 inch watercolour paper and enough sensitising solution for about 8 sheets in total. We feel it s a great way to relate to the heritage of photography - and really good fun too.
