    seems like a noobie question - B&W / platinum question

    Long time photographer and printer.. but recent inkjetter. (epson K3 set)

    For a long time I've been thinking about making negatives with inkjet on transparency for direct printing with platinum technique..

    Any dedicated B&W pigment sets that will simulate platinum feel and glow?
    IE, directly inkjet and forgo the platinum route?

    thanks

    For making negatives using an inkjet printer, take a look at Jon Cone's article, Digital Negative Update. Digital Negatives | PiezoPress

    A dedicated K7 piezography printer is the next step if you want better B&W prints from your Epson. Although I don't use my K7 piezography printer to make digital negatives, I still find the process fascinating.

    There are inksets which have a similar look to platinum/palladium darkroom prints, but there isn't anything which has the same look. The Cone system will give you linear prints, but they're still inkjet prints, not platinum/palladium metal in the cotton fiber paper.
