Because of the many inquiries about the status of the Polywarmtone Resurrection Project we would like to post the up to date status.
The image in the back is original Forte Polywarmtone coated 2007 and the stripe covering it is our version. Both images were printed, developed and scanned together. So you can see how close we are. Our sample is a bit higher in contrast but this is the target because the original is by now 7 years old.
The devil is in the details with photographic emulsions. What we publish might look like a small step ahead compared to earlier releases but there was a lot of work involved to get there.
The main difference is now that we can´t only get an image to look similar- it now also prints with identical settings (contrast/exposure) over a wider choices of gradations.
Please do not forget to register with our version of what became later Kickstarter 😉
We ask for preregistrations to purchase the paper in order to finance the coating once the research process has finished.
