    To test a glass plate camera, I cut a sheet of aluminum to the correct size, painted it black, and taped a sheet of film to it.

    Are you wanting to coat your own plates, or are you looking for commercially made photographic plates?

    There are two manufacturers that still make glass plates.

    But to my knowledge they do not have pictorial emulsions in 5x7 in stock. So likely that would be a case of special order and the related costs.
