Holy camoles!! Cool layout! How did he do that??

Well............ I didn't. This was a great idea (had it been mine) but it was an absolute fluke and does not exist as an original.
Back in the day I made my own prints using Kodak KPP5 paper, a sheet of foam, a very heavy prisine, clear glass plate and a simple 50 watt light bulb and a timer.

The day this piece happened I was in the print room working on the Ethan Allen print collection when there was a knock on the door. I said "ok" and my wife entered. She engaged me in a conversation as I was switching to the film positives of the "Famous/Infamous Indian" print collection.... and... I neglected to change the KPP5 sheet of receptor paper under the glass.
This error superimposed Kicking Bear directly on top of the Pronghorned Antelope! It went unnoticed util that days work was put through the developer, fixer and wash trays.



THose of you who are experienced here will quickly note how crude and grainy this print appears. This was due to a double dose of light on the KPP5 paper. This caused many of the fine black and white lines to burn and disappear leaving a rather crude end result. Kicking Bear's skin has little life to it, but the overall accidental effect worked. It only exists as a single, never sold print....... cool anyway, eh?

After you did this on accident did you ever do any on purpose? I can't believe how well they lined up.

Pure happenstance, but the problem with subsequent attempts with other pieces is that the individual light values didn't work together and line cancellation was too much to accept.
