The making of: Achim Lippoth’s Kid’s Wear

Achim Lippoth

Once the photographs were shot, they printed the original images on a normal inkjet-paper. This was then transferred onto an absorbent piece of paper, which was laid underneath. The transfer was made by using some specific chemicals (available from printmaking distributors). The outcome of this method purely depends on how these chemicals are used so much that many transfers might be needed before the right result is achieved. In this case Benjamin and Michaela have scanned 2 of the images transferred onto the absorbent paper and combined that with the original one in Photoshop. Retouching, using chemicals – old school and awesome!
