The Fotospeed Salt Printing Kit gives you the user a chance to explore the art of Salt Paper Printing.

In the early 1800's, William Henry Fox Talbot produced the first ever paper photograph, and the technique that he used is called salt printing. Although it is relatively easy to create a salt image, this method produces an effect very difficult to reproduce using modern photo-graphic techniques.

Talbot noted that slight variations in the proportions of the chemicals used, led to a variety of tints and hues evident in the image. This, coupled with slight imperfections inevitable in silver nitrate coating, ensures that each salt print is unique.

A salt print is formed by a process of soaking cleansed Canelletto Art paper in a salt solution, and then coating the sheet with a silver solution.

The coated paper is then exposed to UV and then stabilized to create an 'aged' looking image with a unique charm.
