Orotones & Opaltypes


Orotones and Opaltypes are wet-plate collodion positives on glass (for Orotones, clear glass backed with gold foil, and for Opaltypes, "milk" glass (white art glass) is the base).  As archival as other collodion images such as ambrotypes, they exhibit the same depth of detail and tonality.

Orotones and Opaltypes can be made to any size.  Contact cvpphoto@yahoo.com for pricing.
