About Rockland Colloid

Liquid Light is a gelatine-silver emulsion designed to be easily applied to any material. Use it to print photographs on wood, glass, ceramics, plastics, chinaware, fabrics, metals, stone, walls, artist's canvas, even an egg! Make salon-grade prints on the many handmade papers that are available, as a change of pace from look-alike, off-the-shelf photographic papers
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.
Exclusive Features: Designed exclusively for easy darkroom coating. Coverage of 1½ square feet or more per ounce. No fumes or odors because Rockland emulsions are the only brand to contain no phenol, whose fumes can be toxic. Contrast is medium high, approximately #3 grade.

Questions about this item:

Angel R M  Does the Rockland Colloid Liquid Light, Black & White Emulsion is good for wet plate photography??? I mean if it is ok to expose a plate prepared with it direct in a view camera instead of in the darkroom with an enlarger??? Thanks...
KIM G  I've never experimented with the product in this way - keep in mind that it is meant to be used as a positive image, by that I mean you expose it with a negative. If you put it in a camera, you will of course end up with a negative instead (which is what I suspect you are after using glass plates). The exposure time is lengthy - but in bright sun this might actually work. You'll need to experiment - I'd love to hear about your results. Regards, Kim
