To create my ACEO Pure Platinum Art Cards, I first have to create film negatives in my large format view camera and develop them in my off grid darkroom.
I had to create special exposure masks because there are no ACEO size film holders for large format view cameras. To conform to the ACEO size requirements, the negative must be exactly 2.5" x 3.5".
After the film development process, I hand coat freshly mixed platinum chemicals on the fine art paper or vellum and expose it to UV light. I print on Hahnemuhle Platinum Rag paper or acid free vellum for two very unique pieces of artwork. After the exposure process, I develop and process my ACEO art cards to the exact same archival standards as I do for my full size pure platinum prints.
If you have questions about my ACEOs or any part of my creative process, send me an email and introduce yourself and I would be delighted to schedule a time to talk with you directly.
