Len, Are you trying to project it as a sandwich or are you using it at the paper plane/easel? Printed with what printer? Rip? The frosted or white material from Pictorico not the clear is what you want to try first. Although, I have used a clear material from Photo Warehouse with the Cone inks, output with an Epson 7000, and running with Image Print 6.0. I use that set up for making enlarged negs for platinum printing. I also use it occasionally to make mask, but thank goodness, only a few time. Another tool that is very handy to make black, is small flash light with an attachment available at auto parts stores. I also use it as a portable safe light by inserting a small piece of rubylith and making the light red. Works great for finding misplaced items in the dark, as long as it is not the misplaced item : ) Eric Neilsen Photography 4101 Commerce Street, Suite 9 Dallas, TX 75226 214-827-8301 http://ericneilsenphotography.com > -----Original Message----- > From: pure-silver-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:pure-silver- > bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Len Eselson > Sent: Sunday, September 18, 2005 12:10 PM > To: pure-silver@xxxxxxxxxxxxx; Eric Neilsen Photography > Subject: [pure-silver] Re: How do I increase local contrast in my shadows > when printing? > > I had tried making digital masks for 2 1/4 negs, enlarged around 8X, > but had problems with finding a suitable masking material for my ink-jet > printer.
