Since shipping is always an issue to my remote location - the North of Canada, I usually buy in bulk for supplies that are stable. Please advise, or PM me if you would rather not respond on list.

    Cheers,

    The Formulary sells photo grade gelatin, but I'm working on other sources.

    Rousselot is willing to sell, and Kodak is 'coming around'.

    Stay tuned.

    Tim, I have no 2008 schedule as yet for workshops. I have so many commitments right now that I can barely keep up with 'research'. I'm sorry I cannot help you.

    polycontrast paper

    Has anyone attempted to coat an ortho emulsion on paper then use pokycontrat filters, or a colorhear, to print?

    It will not work. You need to have two emulsions with different characteristics and different sensitivities. There are several articles on the internet, including on the Ilford site, that describe how this works.

    Hand coating with a blade seems ridiculously difficult to me. A ceramic analox roller, as used in flexography with a doctor blade would be so much easier and more precise. Well just read your post from new years day last year ... I'm not slow to understand, just fast at misunderstanding.

    Interesting idea - how thick of a coating can they put down? And they look to cost about 10 times more than PE's coating blade.

    The ceramic material must be glazed, and insenstive to acid and base. It must have no heavy metal (pigment) content.
