Mordançage or etch-bleach process offers many possibilities for silver gelatine prints. The process is known for it’s characteristic veiling. We will select one or two negatives to print from and apply many different mordançage treatments to the print and discuss how to achieve different effects as well as the proper care and storage for them. We will begin by making a series of prints from one negative to explore the range of possibilities this process has to offer.
