Salted Paper

Talbot's early salted paper or "photogenic drawing" process used writing paper bathed in a weak solution of ordinary table salt sodium chloride dried, then brushed on one side with a strong solution of silver nitrate, which created a tenacious coating of very light-sensitive silver nitrate that darkened where it was exposed to light.
