    Hello,
    I am more of a reader here on APUG and now I am making my way into alternative processes. I've started with cyanotypes from my 4x5 negatives and I wanted to try some process for smaller formats enlargemenst - which could be bromoil printing.
    However, I am at my wit's end, because I am quite unable to find a source for potassium dichromate in some sensible amount - AND without the need of a minimum order of 100pounds like from Silverprint..
    Does anyone know where it is possible to buy a bit of this ingredient in Europe?

    Thank you very much

    Regards,
    Andrew

    You could try contacting David Lewis here: http://www.bromoil.com/products.html
    He is based in Canada, but may know where it can be purchased in Europe, as he does workshops there.

    AgX, Thank you, that seems to solve many problems! I didn't hear about them yet.
