The polychromatic Woodburytype: Colour tracking in translucent, patterned gelatin/pigment films (2020)
Journal Article
Leech, D. J., Guy, W., & Klein, S. (2020). The polychromatic Woodburytype: Colour tracking in translucent, patterned gelatin/pigment films. Molecules, 25(11), Article 2468. https://doi.org/10.3390/molecules25112468

The Woodburytype is a 19th century photomechanical technique capable of producing high-quality continuous-tone prints. It uses pigment dispersed in gelatin to produce a 2.5D print, in which the effect of varying tone is produced by a variation in the...
