Camp Wacky Wet Plate – Tintype Photo Gift

Welcome to our virtual wet plate photo camp!

For the last couple of years, our camp has rolled a homemade camera/darkroom out to the playa to gift tintype photos to whoever was curious enough to stop and see what we were up to. This year is so different/unique/crazy in so many ways, and the playa tintype gifting is no different.

However, our camp still wanted to do something this year to provide a small bit of magic for some fellow burners. So, we are going virtual this year! If you Facebook message one photo you love and your mailing address to our Facebook page, you just might get a surprise in your mailbox someday!
We are going to randomly pick about 100 photos to convert into real tintypes and mail to you. By random, we mean it, there will no consideration in regards to age, race, gender, location, etc. Just like out on the playa, anyone that stops by is welcome!

1. Photos that are bright and sharp work best (see some examples we have posted on our page). Dark photos will turn out much blacker than the original.
2. Please only send one photo. This is laborious and time consuming process, so we are limited in how many we can make.
3. We will need a postal address where letters/packages can be delivered. All gifts will be coming from the USA, sometime on the next few months.
4. Simply message your image and address to our Camp Wacky Wet Plate Facebook page and it will go into the bucket we will pull from.
5. Please be kind to us. We are making this sh*t up as we go, just like everybody else!

The event is finished.
