Piezography Special Edition InkAbout This Category
This is a unique ink set specially blended by Jon Cone for split-tones that displays crisp neutral highlights which meld into selenium which then meld into Carbon shadows with a clear black. This is the most beautiful ink set Piezography has ever released to the public.
This ink set was influenced heavily by Cone's printmaking for photographer Gregory Colbert and his Ashes and Snow exhibitions (the Nomadic Museum) in Santa Barbara, Tokyo, and Mexico City. The inks that Cone developed for Colbert are extremely complex and they numbered 11 individual formulations. However, there were three subtle splits in the Ashes and Snow prints made for the exhibitions. The Colbert prints were seen by more than 13 million people. Cone wanted to commemorate his three year effort with something which might have a universal appeal as did the Colbert prints.
Special Edition inks warm as they get darker in tone. Many people describe the finished results as looking like platinum/palladium printing.
