    Hello!

    I was searching thru APUG and internet about the exact recipe for Carbro bleach mixture. Mostly i have found out the chemicals needed, but the mixing ratio between the chemicals is still an issue. Can anybody help me with this? Many thanks to all in advance!

    MAYBE A ZOMBIE, but here is what I used for many years-- greenCARBRO.png
    it is 'single bath'

    as an aside, is anyone making carbros using current, off-the-shelf papers?

    have just tested 2 papers - in the irony of PT, Lupex works well... a contact paper makes a good carbro paper... so, with a large negative I can make a print that can be used to make a carbon print... OR, I could just use the large negative..
    not useful, but maybe of interest on some barstool

    the Fomatone MG 542 II Chamois has promise...

    Carbro has been for years on my to-do list but I didn't get anywhere further with it than a few failed attempts. I used Imago Bromoil paper but I can't say if it works or not, but it doesn't matter too much because it seems it was already discontinued, maybe last year. Basically just wanted to say that I'm also very interested to hear which modern papers can be used for carbro.
