A type of photographic [[printing out paper]]. Developed by William Henry Fox Talbot, salted paper was prepared by directly soaking paper in a solution of [[table salt]] then treating it with [[silver nitrate]]. By 1841, salted paper was made with a thin salt-filled [[gelatin]] coating that was dried then treated with silver nitrate to form a photosensitive silver halide compound. Gelatin was most commonly used as a binder, but other materials such as [[albumen]], [[arrowroot starch]], [[agar-agar]], and [[starch]] were also used. The image was produced by exposing the paper to the sun through a negative then fixed with [[potassium bromide]] or [[sodium thiosulfate]] solutions. By the 1860s, salted paper was replaced in popular use by [[albumen paper]].

Salt print

Description

A type of photographic Printing out paper. Developed by William Henry Fox Talbot, salted paper was prepared by directly soaking paper in a solution of Table salt then treating it with Silver nitrate. By 1841, salted paper was made with a thin salt-filled Gelatin coating that was dried then treated with silver nitrate to form a photosensitive silver halide compound. Gelatin was most commonly used as a binder, but other materials such as Albumen, Arrowroot starch, Agar-agar, and Starch were also used. The image was produced by exposing the paper to the sun through a negative then fixed with Potassium bromide or Sodium thiosulfate solutions. By the 1860s, salted paper was replaced in popular use by Albumen paper.
