Collodion Quickie – Tinting and Burnishing Clinic – September 17

Collodion Quickie – Tinting and Burnishing Clinic


Date  |  September 17, 10am – 12:30pm

Instructor  |  Jaqueline Webster

Skill Level  |  Open to all

Concept: Take your wet-plate practice one step further by learning how to tint and burnish your ambrotype or tintype plates. Learn how to add subtle, selective color to your positive plates and make your metallic subjects glow, all without looking artificial or overdone. Bring along some of your own unvarnished work plates to practice on, or use the instructor’s sample plates. Once we’ve tinted and burnished, we’ll varnish our plates and make protective storage envelopes so they make it home safely. Please note: this is not a shooting workshop.
