Palladium over pigment prints
The paper first printed with only the color separation using a pigment ink. A contact negative is created of only the black parts of the image which is used in contact printing as a palladium print. The paper is then sensitized with a solution of iron oxalate and a palladium salt, exposed, developed in sodium citrate, cleared, and washed to remove residual chemicals, leaving a final image consisting of fine metallic palladium and pigment.
