Liquid light can be used for photographs on wood, glass, ceramics, plastics, chinaware, fabrics, metals, stone, walls, artist's canvas, even an egg. Its even possible to make salon-grade prints on the many handmade papers that are available on the market. Liquid Light is gelatin based that is melted down in hot water (as explained in the instructions).

- Printing with Liquid Light is the same as with black-and-white enlargement paper. Under an amber or red safelight, brush the emulsion onto the surface to be coated. Wait a few minutes for it to firm up, then expose with an enlarger or slide projector. Process with conventional paper developer and hardening fixer. The print will be archivally-permanent with a full range of tones from warm blacks to clean transparent highlights that reveal the texture and color of the material underneath.
- Contrast: medium high, approximately #3 grade.
- Coverage: Approximately 1 1/2 square feet per ounce.
- No fumes, odors or VOC's: Liquid Light and other Rockland emulsions are made exclusively for darkroom coating and are the only brand of photographic emulsions with no phenol.
