Overview

In this fun and instructional video, Bonny Lhotka, author of Digital Alchemy: Printmaking techniques for fine art, photography, and mixed media, shows new processes for inkjet printing on metal, metal leaf, and non-porous surfaces using custom precoats and gelatin transfers. All of the processes shown in the video can be completed with ordinary desktop and wide format printers using pigment inks. All you need is a great digital image and a little imagination to begin creating unique works of art with these one-of-a-kind printing techniques.

"Synchronization problems" - by Linda Taylor on 28-FEB-2011

For some reason the editor felt it was necessary to insert  pictures of Ms. Lhotka's artwork into the video, while leaving the audio intact, so that the audio and video don't match. The sync is off by a few minutes by the end of the second video.

I'm very interested in the subject. I hope it is re-edited and reposted.
