JCM Proudly Presents: Alternative Processes Project #4

While not my most successful project, I had fun making the negatives for these photos. These are gum bichromate prints- a mixture of watercolor paint, gum arabic, and another chemical that I can't remember right now. They are true monochromatic photos! We were supposed to appropriate photos, but I wasn't too sure about that, so I used some of my grandmother's snap shots she left us. And also, I painted masks, capes and general superhero gear on my family members. That was the fun part. My favorite might be Emily as the superhero baby.
