    When I was testing my multiply melted emulsion, (tripple melt), I noticed very little haloing around the trees if any. Thats interesting. But the image was too contrasty for my liking.

    hi ron

    i wasn't suggesting it was a average household darkroom item.
    if someone is making their own emulsions they are already using
    things that are not found in an average household darkroom
    ether fumes is why i suggested a well ventilated area,
    and the flammable nature of collodion is why i suggested
    it to be not close to heat ( cleveland clinic fire ) ...

    i have maybe a litre of water glass, one of these days i will put dye in it to see if it takes it
    and then see how it washes out .. probably the wash-out will be the problem ... and contaminate the emulsion ...
    unless it is coated on a sheet of plastic and just placed between the plate or film and the plate / film holder ...
    silver magnets, trickle tanks sold
    artwork often times sold for charity
    PM me for details

    John;

    Many people try things though when they don''t know what they are dealing with. I was not commenting on your post.
