Is there a special sort of paper that should be used for paper backing?
Great to see when things don't go according to plan too and how you manage to fix them. That LC looks fab. Well done Mark! =D>
@ David: Thanks for the video, have been experimenting with my pencils and much harder than I thought to lay down the colors; getting them to match, burnishing the fold lines and not having it "stand out." Another process...
Nice job Mark I see you also avoided the white streaks problem you had for the Jimmy half sheet? What caused that ?
Thanks guys. I've got another OS scheduled for this weekend. I'm trying get one down and not have the issue I had with the Northside 777 were the ink seemed to run/fade?? I picked one with similar dark colors over a lot of area on the poster and within a year or two of 1955. We'll see what the results will be after I've made some adjustments to the wet work steps.
------------I've come to realize that if i'm to back some of my higher value items, I need to know how the paper will react, what wash steps are adjusted for each paper that has different toning, foxing, tears, etc. and for OS's, HS, LC's, etc...
Hahahaha...that is one poster in bad shape... #-o ...I'll likely sacrifice it for paper fills...
----but you bring up a good point David...the next one sheet i'm going to back was distributed by MGM in 1953, and included Agnes Moorhead in the cast...Can you guess which movie it is???
