Fotospeed's Heritage Range of traditional processing kits illustrate how the Masters of the photographic art who developed and evolved the modern photographic process, produced rich quality images using a variety of light sensitive materials and a combination of intriguing chemicals. Each kit contains chemicals, paper, gloves, glass rods and other ancillary equipment necessary for each process. Requires contact frame or plexiglass (not included).

Argyrotype takes the photographer back to first principals - using a silver based sensitizing solution which is coated onto a quality art paper. Argyrotype is a user-friendly iron-based silver printing process that produces brown images on paper. It is derived from the Argentotype, Kallitype, and Vandyke processes of the 19th Century, but has greater simplicity, improved image stability and longer sensitizer shelf-life.

The Fotospeed Argyrotype Kit uses a silver-based sensitizing solution, coated onto a quality art paper. Exposure is by natural sunlight (you may need a UV light source for the winter months or for speedier exposure) and development is in water with fixation using a simple hypo solution. Argyrotype prints are warm toned giving good contrast and midtone definition. Being silver based they can then be toned and dyed as they would have been in the early days. You make all images are made by the contact system, where the image depends on a negative of the right size.

This kit comes with everything that you need, you get 5 sheets 8x10in Fabriano5 HP paper, 5 sheets 8x10in Digital contact film, 2ml syringe 50ml bottle of Argyrotype sensitizer, 2 coating rods - one 4 in. and one 7 in.,140gms of Hypo Crystals, protective gloves and full detailed instructions for use.
