This is a silver-based sensitizer for applying on any surface, exposing by an enlarger, and processing in conventional chemistry. It is virtually the same emulsion found on ordinary photographic paper, but in a liquid form and can allow the emulsion to be coated on a wide range of surfaces.
Here I have applied the liquid light using a brush to scrap metal and once it was dried exposed it with the enlarger. It was then developed, fixed and washed similar to any photographic paper.
The final piece of scrap metal was then stuck onto painted pine to be displayed.
The image you see before you is then a digital photograph of the displayed piece.

The original photograph used to create this piece can be found here

    And have two human eyes which came with my body attached to my head and My hands clicked on your thumbnail and it opened and the central neuro reseptors in my brain thought this is great and a very effective treatment then I read the process and thought I would share mine through to typing this to you Whewww Explanations can get a bit complicated. but for many they are very important. Finaly the creative in you is very active as few others would go to such lengths to get such a terrific one of image. Cia0 Steve ( ; – )) An avid admirer of your creativity
