    hi all

    this is mostly to members from Europe, as I am looking for a good place to buy Liquid emulsion from FOMA (czeck).

    I just realized the potential of this. and I have some, but will soon run out ;(

    I know I can buy it in Prague, but that IS a long way to travel for this..(I'm from Denmark)
    but I can't find the product on the home page of FOMA and I can't find an adress for the FOMA shop in Prague..

    maybe this product is sold from else where? preferrably within EU..(Schengen, you know)

    I am normally working with SE1 from Kentmere - love it, but FOMA's Liquid Emulze has a certain something...

    hellllp...pleeeease..

    Don't they sell it, perhaps under another brand name, at fotoimpex.de?

    I am scheduling a trip to Prague in the autumn or the spring (spring may be a little far away...) and I will happily bring some home for you. Once in Denmark shipping is not that expensive (or you can come by Århus and pick it up and get some coffee :smile:)

    Greetings Morten

    Not Foma, but Retro Photographic in the UK have an Adolux liquid emulsion which may be similar. Worth emailing them to ask as they are also a Foma stockist.

    EDIT For some reason the full web address won't save. The missing parts between the sh and ndex are op/59/61/i

    yes - that's the point: may be similar....

    I know of many different emulsions, but the FOMA one seems to be really the one for Bromoil printing..

    well - my mistake - I searched for freestyle.com but got something not worth mentioning..

    now I did a google search and think I found it.
    freestylephoto.biz?

    they dont have it - and as it is american, the taxes is high..

    thanks anyway.

    I had a look at the Foma website http://www.foma.cz/ and didn't see a liquid emulsion listed, that's why I thought it may be something like Adolux rebranded. Then again, maybe they just don't list it if it isn't a big seller. As their website has an English version, maybe worth an email to check on availability/stockists?
