There’s something very calming about doing test strips…you don’t have to make any decisions, you’re just seeing what happens.

I wanted to see what would happen if I wrote on salted paper before brushing on the silver nitrate solution.

The plan was that when I rubbed out the pencil, it would mask the paper and you could read the writing.

It worked, but not quite as crisply as I’d have liked (which I expected).

Interestingly, there isn’t a linear progression. I think 6B is the most effective, but I think it might be a better technique for drawings than text.
