"Here's the original black& white along with the gum dichromate. These prints are made by creating a copy negative the size of the final print, coating paper with a mixture of gum arabic, potassium dichromate and watercolors. The negative is then placed on top of the dried, coated paper and exposed to UV light, then washed/developed in water. This process is then repeated 5-16 times to achieve a final print. The smallest misalignment of the negative can ruin weeks of work"
