In celebration of Month of Photography, come to the Tintype Obscura Studios for a FREE Wet Plate Tintype Portrait Demonstration by tintype artist Patrick Cavan Brown. Learn the history, smell the chemistry, and witness the magic of 1850’s analog photography.

Want to make your own 4 x 5 tintype? For $75, you can pour the chemistry, focus the camera, and photograph a friend – or have a portrait made of you. Available every Saturday afternoon in March at 1 pm.

Tintype Obscura Studios is located 5 miles from Boulder at 4053 Sunshine Canyon.
If the driveway at the studio is full, head up the road 800 feet to Bald Mountain Scenic Area and walk down the trail to the studio.

Be aware: 
If you plan on pouring chemistry, know that your hands and clothes may get stained.
If you plan to have your portrait made, be sure to wear something fantastic!!!
