Argyrotype is an iron-base silver print process. Alongside Cyanotype, this process is a good introduction to alternative print techniques. It is also a useful tool to teach workshops. Another use is when you want to proof large format negatives.
The prints will not have the permanence of Platinum or Palladium. However, they cost less less to produce and the process is easy in comparison.
We recommend Arches Platine for use as a base paper for alternative processes.
