    Hi,
    Wondering if anybody in Australia has oils/inks or dyes for hand colouring they no longer require and would like to sell?
    Would anyone know where to purchase in Aus the above mentioned

    Cheers

    There was a set of Photocolor dyes at a Photography Fair here in the UK a week ago, £10, however you can use food dyes or better still the Inkjet refill which are cheap and more light fast.

    I've a spare set of retouching dyes but postage would be awkward as they are small glass bottles and you can easily mix your own from readily available inks in Australia at a very low cost.

    I have some Marshall oils you can have for free if the postage from Canada isn't too exhorbitant. I only use dyes now. PM me if you're interested.
