This close up is something you will not find anywhere else on the internet: a chrysotype displayed at actual size. The custom appears to be either to shrink one's Chrysotype S (or "New" Chrystope) down to make it look smoother toned and finer grained than it actually is, or to mix it with palladium without admitting so in the hope of fooling viewers into thinkig it is pure gold. And, frankly, that is perfectly understandable for chrysotypes made with that process, as the poor quality interferes with appreciating the image. However, such unprofessional shenanigans are obviously unnecessary with the Texas Chrysotype. Viewed at life size (if necessary, zoom in or out until the little finger is from base to tip exactly the same height as a US dollar bill placed next to it on your screen), this pure gold image is quite simply grainless, with superb 3 dimensionality -- look at the plastic mannequin torso -- and a pleasing gray scale.
