Create A Tintype From Your Photograph

Digital Tintype

A tintype is a photograph made by exposing an image directly onto a sheet of metal that is blackened by painting, lacquering or enamelling and is used as a support for a collodion photographic emulsion. A digital tintype is a one-of-a-kind tintype made from a digital file. These tintypes are made by first converting a digital file into a photographic negative that is then exposed in an enlarger.

Here’s an opportunity for anyone to own a Digital Tintype (2.5″x2.5″ $35, 4″x5″ $60, 5″x7″ $115, 8″x10″ $200). Four different plate styles for your digital tintype are available, black, brown, polished silver, and rose gold. And as with all photographs, your digital tintype should not be placed directly in the sun, this will insure that your image will last for generations. ❚
