More photos on wood

I had a very successful day this past weekend, and all 4 exposures came out great! Both battle diptychs are coming along. I need to paint into them a little, but I like how they are looking.

These panels are great. What is the emulsion and how did you expose them?

Thanks Ammon!
They are Liquid Light photo emulsion on wood. I turned my studio into a darkroom and the exposure is actually just a contact print from a large digital negative, using straight white light. The developing was tricky, but I found huge plastic trays that they sell to put under washing machines and industrial sinks. It was very time consuming but really fun to make them.

Thanks Matt. I love it when artists push limits and figure things out.
