    Actually I think the hue or color is closer to developed silver.

    Maybe it would work as an(other) edible inkjet dye...

    The squid's already dead - might as well eat it.

    Now that this thread has been thouroghly hijacked - I was wondering if you'd expand on Wasabi's photographic properties - A quick google doesn't turn up much of anything, and I'm curious.

    BTW- that squid ink does wonders if you make pasta with it.

    And to even further complicate the thread - has anyone here tried to make a daguerrotype? It's on my list of things to do - right after get a working film emulsion, carbon printing tissue, salt prints, and palladium.

    The expense is what kills me more than the Mercury issue - I think it would be fairly simple to make a development box that retains all the vapor (I'd put the plate in a sealed box and use a vacum to vaporize the mercury, then pressurize to condense the vapors again, probably won't work, but that's my idea)

    Well, there's various peoples around the world that do (or have done) that. Just don't eat the brains - I hear that Creutzfeldt- Jakob disease is not too fun.

    Anyway - who are we to judge...

    AKA cold mercury developing, there was an article by John Hurlock in the Daguerreian Annual describing its use.

    It does work as well as heat, although in my experiments it is a bit slower. I suppose if you can get the vacuum high (low?) enough it should be able to develop the Daguerreotype plate as quickly as hot mercury.

    In my use (a bell jar) the vacuum process didn't solve any of the toxicity issues, since after removing the vacuum the mercury is (probaby) spread all over the bottom and perhaps sides of the jar. I suppose you could rub it down with sulfur, but you might as well just buy or build a fume hood and do it right.

    Sorry - I did not meant to hijack...

    The wasabi maybe related more to emulsion making than processing.
    I doubt there is anything on the net as the research is unpublished.

    Yes the pasta is very popular here.
