Learn how to create your own traditional style tintypes in this 2-part hands-on workshop. Tintypes are photographs made by creating a direct positive on a thin sheet of metal coated with a dark lacquer or enamel. The main focus of this workshop is how to get a successful tintype plate through hands-on experience. You will gain a practical understanding of the process so you can continue to work in collodion on your own in the future.
