Thanks for your reply.
Here in DK ALL raw chemistry is a hazzle to get! "Normal" people cant! Period. But if you have a VAT number, then it is possible...
(this has made me abandon even the thought of making wet plate... OMG... those chemicals... KCN? not in a million years...)
All the hazzle makes me sometimes want to seek photographic asylum in the States... It seems so easy over there....
Well, I just posted one in the gallery. I used a print with too much contrast, I think. It's fun, though.
Um, I'm not really sure where you guys are looking to get your chemistry for this process but it can easily be obtained through David Lewis' website. Paper, chemistry and even some of the tools commonly used for this process are for sale on his site. Just send him an email: email@example.com and he'll set you up.
From my experience, the bleach gets exhausted pretty quickly. Not talking about stock, but the diluted form used to bleach the prints. It usually lasted me about 6-8 8x10 prints. But I'm not even sure you're using the same bleaching method I did. I used a combination of 70ml of a 10% copper sulphate solution, 70ml of a 10% potassium bromide solution and 30ml of a 10% potassium dichromate solution. Keep these 3 separate until you need the bleaching step. Then mix into 1 liter of water to complete the bleach.
