Piezography Warm Neutral in some ways is the “original Coca Cola” of Piezography. When we first introduced Piezography in 2000, we introduced it with a Warm Neutral ink. Then we began to revolutionize our ink chemistry and we introduced PiezoTone Warm Neutral in 2002.
The best way to describe Warm Neutral is that of a warm photographic gray similar to the bromide or slightly azo greenish, brownish surfaces of yesteryear. It is actually one of my most favorite tones. I suppose I like all my inks. But, this is the ink color that I first introduced and I find myself coming back to it time and time again. I especially favor it for small prints. I think the soft warm neutral tone is perfect for images which are intimate in size. The tone does not try to grab attention by being too warm or too cold. I think Warm Neutral allows the strength of the photograph to come through in a way that is very familiar. It is a visual neutrality that is different than printing with Piezography Neutral.
Warm Neutral inks produce a black and white tone that is simply a very natural photographic color; one that will be familiar to just about anyone who used to do darkroom work.
