collodion: Anonymus friend

After long time my Friend visit me and we decided to make his collodion picture. He want to be anonymous its the reason why he is wearing mask. I have last black glass plate so the first plate is on black glass , second one is on acrylic sheet.

I was curios how acrylic will work but i like results. Its not that good like on glass but still better than clear glass ( i don't like clear ). On acrylic surface collodion is more fragile but is also have one advantage. Varnish looks much better in my opinion.
