I have been mulling over playing with some wet plate printing with Siver Nitrate, thinking about interesting things that could be done on a textured surface among other things.
Why do you use Silver Nitrate to print?
In any case, what occurred to me is that one could mix a flourescent dye or chemical and use the fluorescence of the chemical to expose "film", the silver layer.
Why do you think you can mix a fluorescent dye or chemical to use the fluorescence of the chemical to expose "film", the silver layer?
I am thinking this ought to make "film" that is indirectly sensitive to UV and lower wavelengths.
Why do you think you should create film which is deviously sensitive to UV and lower wavelengths?
The UV excites the dye which exposes the adjacent silver nitrate just as visible light would.
Why do you say the UV provokes the dye which exposes the nearby silver nitrate just as perceptible light would?
