For tintypes, the metal that I typically use is engraving metal with a thickness of .020 and buffed bright black. This time when I went to order plates from Main Trophy , I decided to order a sample pack of 3x3 plates in the color of blue, purple, red, green, and gold. And these are the results.
Ive always was most curious of ordering purple glass to do ambrotypes with, but having a recent adventure with glass and cleaning and making albumen I was glad in the end not to do a lot of prep work.
Not sure if I would order full plates of the blue, but it was definitely with the trial and error.
Till next time!
