Two print style options:
Edition of 5, Gold-toned kallitype on thin paper with metal leaf on the back
Edition of 5, Gold-toned kallitype on platinum rag paper with pigment color.

Gold/Metal Leaf backing:
This moody print has metallic highlights and a bit of hand-painted color as well.
Kallitype is an iron and silver basic photographic technique. This print is made
directly onto a natural fiber paper of tissue weight. During processing the print is toned replacing the iron with more archivally stable gold. The metal leaf is then adhered to the reverse side of the paper with acid-free metal sizing. The reflective metal can be seen as sparkles and metallic highlights throughout the image.
All of these printing steps have been done by hand by the artist.
