Hand-tinted Albumen

I have done some prints with the Albumen technic using digital negatives. The quality of the print is ok comparing to the orignal shot in 35mm. I have printed the tweaked file in a normal inkjet printer using a simple tranparency sheet so I can't really expect much quality to be honest...

The great thing about this picture is that I could test some watercolours onto the print. This image was printed on Hahnemuhle proof paper which is cheaper and yet really good, I love the way the colours rendered onto the Albumen.

It's a shame I missed some of the details in the shadows, especially in the model's face, but I guess the colours really added some atmosphere to the shot.
