I find that the Wikipedia article on Photogravure gives a good detailed overview of the subject. An easier to follow and shorter version can be found in this description of the process. Here's the summary of the technique: Contact-print a positive onto a layer of gelatine sensitized in potassium dichromate. This hardens the exposed parts of the gelatine. ...
If you are willing to do it the hard way, you can use standard black-and-white photographic printing paper and do a reversal processing on it. What that means is that you will be making a negative, but then making a direct positive from the negative without an additional imaging exposure (though there will be an additional exposure to light). It will ...
The following is probably not entirely accurate, but I will try to highlight what I think the main differences are. Also, keep in mind that most of the names used above are umbrella terms for whole families of processes that might differ significantly within one family. I think photogravure and circuit etching can be seen as somewhat similar with respect to ...
Alternative Photography, which is on Google's first page, is still one of the best resources I know of for alt-process photography, so I'll recommend it anyway: http://www.alternativephotography.com/wp/processes/wetplate/the-wetplate-collodion-process The forums at f295.org are low-traffic, but generally helpful and knowledeable, and don't show up for the ...
Most modern large-format plotters used by specialist print companies can print on a variety of surfaces, including canvas, acetate, and Tyvek. I would think your best option is to print onto acetate (transparency) and fix that to the canvas board somehow, perhaps on top of or embedded in the resin you mentioned.
A good tutorial on making digital negatives using The Gimp. A free image editing software platform. http://www.alternativephotography.com/wp/negatives/digital-negatives-gimp You can make them on your computer and then print using any printer you have. Not sure why you mention your printer? Maybe some printers have this option built in?

As near as I can tell, "tactile photography" is a very, very limited artistic style with only a couple of instances of it being used. In it, a photograph is printed on a raised relief surface so that a blind person could feel the image. What you need to be able to do it depends on how you want to go about it. At a minimum, you would need a method of ...
My question essentially is: the dyes that are in photographic film are just different chemicals that react to the silver bromide complex during development. Undeveloped film does not contain dyes. It contains couplers. When the film is developed, the couplers react with the developer agent from the developer and dye is created. This is only happening ...
There is nothing "conventional" about cross processing. Cross processing is the deliberate processing of a film in a chemical process for which it was not designed. The most common types of cross processing are : Processing color negative films with the E6 process Processing color reversal films with the C41 process Processing color negative film in E6 ...
