Photographers' Formulary 07-0100 overview

  • 1Description

Photographer's Formulary Gum Bichromate Kits provide you access to one of the most versatile and least complicated of the non-silver processes.

Photographers Formulary now offers two Gum Printing kits:

  • The Classical containing only black pigment, and
  • The Contemporary, containing red, blue, and yellow pigment.

Both kits have liquid Gum Arabic, Ammonium Dichromate, and extensive directions for their use.

Gum Printing is unique among all the printing processes. It is distinguished by unlimited flexibility. The printer has complete control and may produce prints of any color or contrast.

These prints are characterized by a long, open scale that is soft and romantic, but fine detail is not possible.

Gum Printing uses water color pigments rather than metal to form the base. The paper is coated with the gum arabic and a dichromate salt.

When dried paper is contact printed, the exposed areas become water insoluble. A warm water development dissolves the gum from the unexposed areas.

The pigment in the retained areas forms the image. Multiple printing with different colors is a common technique.

The difference between the Classical and the Contemporary kits is the Classical will only do black and white while the Contemporary contains 3 color pigments.

This kit will make up to 35-40 / 8 x 10" prints.

Photographers' Formulary 07-0100 reviews

Classical Gum Printing Kit - Makes 35-40 8x10" Prints is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I needed I make prints using watercolor COLOR pigment with this kit, instead of buying the contemporary gum printing kit. There are a ton of variables to control for gum printing, but it yields a good result. I thought the directions on the gelatin sizing were misleading, however. I added the hardener too soon, so I was only able to coat a few pieces before it all turned to gel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Great I used this product with classmates to create multicolored gum prints (for colors other than black we used acrylic paints purchased on our own). ... gave us plenty of prints to work with. The instructions for mixing were clear and concise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good starter kit I just started to print using Gum bichromate and this kit is great to get started with. The images are coming to fairly well. I do recommend this for anyone wanting to get into gum printing.
