MERMAIDThese are 4x5" tintype photographs. Printed on actual pieces of metal. you first have to put a film (collodion) on the metal than soak them in silver nitrate for 5 mins, than expose to light and develop.
The are extremely fun but somewhat time consuming. Not like today's digital work! But the details are excellent and the satisfaction of taking photos and developing them yourself is like no other! The smells of all the chemicals can be a tad overwhelming but worth it!
