An example of two-pass lith printing using Slavich Bromportrait Grade 3 Glossy fibre-base.

The print was first developed in Moersch EasyLith 1+25 at 30°C, then bleached in copper bleach to finality.

It was then redeveloped in the same EasyLith (in room lighting) and ‘snatched’ at this point where some of the deepest shadows had a mottled appearance and the overal print a split-toned effect.

The print was then thoroughly washed but NOT re-fixed, as this tends to destroy the colours, which were in any case much more vivid before drying.

It’s an interesting effect, but not easy to achieve! More details of the process used, together with single-pass lith examples on this paper and Foma, will be added soon.
