Just wondering???

Postby Roger Jerome » September 2nd, 2017, 8:03 am

I have a Canon Pixma Pro9000 MKII wide format printer. Could this printer be used for generating film positives? I haven't had a chance to experiment yet and still nowhere near the photo resist process but just wondering about possibility of using it for same in future(???)

Thank you

Roger

Hi Roger,

I don't see why you couldn't use it. I've used several Canon Pixma printers over the last 15 years to print artwork for washout film. The nice thing I find about Canon is the ink dries almost instantly when printing transparencies, and has worked with any brand of inkjet transparency, even the really cheap stuff. Just remember to set your paper setting in the printer to Glossy Photo Paper to get a nice dark print on transparencies.

Cheers,
Eriks

Thank you Eriks.

That is good news.
I do miss the Nazdar process camera I used back in my screenprinting days for generating high density film positives...but it was a tad large for this.
I have only been at the sandcarving for almost 2 years and kind of wondering if the screenprinting photo emulsion films may be worth experimenting with for photo resists(?)

Cheers
