Light Oils
A light oil consists of a transparent application of color on a sepia toned fiber based print. This style of oil painting is best requested when a delicate or soft look is desired. It is often used to duplicate the tinted images prior to color photography and is suitable for babies, baby panels, or when an almost watercolor effect is desired. The oil is applied with lambs wool or polyester and does not have any brush strokes. A "perfect negative" or file is needed as the application is 100% transparent.
Selective Tint
This is the selective application of color on a B&W or Sepia toned print. This style also duplicates some of the of pre color photographs. It has been used since the days of adding a touch of color on ambrotypes and tintypes.
