View Full Version : Ron`s Matrix Idea

03-27-2008, 02:18 PM
Hello Ron,
I remember reading a post by you, iether here or on the Dyetransfer Yahoo group, concerning making a pan matrix film by blending three emulsions,all based on Jim Brownings matrix formula. The post mentioned 2 specific dyes.
Now I cannot find the post !
Can you dirrect me to it.
For the time being, I am not trying to make a matrix film.
What I want to do is to make panchro glass plates suitable for in-camera photographs. To this end I want to beginw ith your idea. Other approaches I have considered are dyes from Holography technology and dye systems from the old Lippman process and varriations thereof.
Since attending your workshop last summer, I have been occupied with my Pt and gum images on glass. I have now decided on putting that aside for a while to work on Liberating myself from commercial Film. Emulsion speed is not crucial. Most of my work dose not involve moving subjects.

It is in this forum and has some content about panchromatic matrix film in it.

I have about 500 mg left of both dyes needed, but I don't have the information here. Send me an e-mail Bill and I'll give you the info, but the source is Sands Corp. of Titusville Fla.
