    Has anyone tinkered with putting their Glycin in solution to maintain longevity? I use about 1# every 5-6 months so have not had any problems with the stuff from Formulary....EC

    I too like 130 but my Glycin is old and brown and can't afford any new. It still works but I try to save it for special times. So I also was looking around. I was reading a post on Salvich Bromide. While reading the artical I saw he ( Liam Lawless) had a warmtone dev. I tryed it, and with some tweeking and playing I came very close to the 130 look. I upped the bromide slightly and I did not put the carbonate in until I mix the working. At a dilution of 1:12 I get a nice warm but not brown print. I dev. this for 3 min. My paper is Arista II. I have not tryed it on other papers yet. I will try it with Varycon. Here is the url http://www.ex-obscurum.com/slavich.htm. The dev. formula is about a third the way done.

    Yes, I have posted on that topic here on APUG. I disolved the Glycin in TEA (Triethanolamine). Worked fine.

    I prefer to mix my own developers rather than buying proprietary products.

    I have used Ilford ID-78 with excellent results (I mix it from scratch and add more Potassium Bromide). Ian Grant posted the ID-78 recipe in the APUG recipes section a long time ago - but it has since disappeared.

    Here the ID-78 formula:
    ID-78

    750 ml. water
    50 grams Sodium sulfite anidro
    62 grammi Sodium carbonate anidro
    12 grammi Idrochinon
    0.50 grammi Phenidone in 20 ml. alcool
    *4.5 grammi Potassium Bromide

    Diluition 1+1 water 1 minute developing time at 20 C.
    Diluition 1+3 water 2 minutes tdeveloping time at 20 C.
    * you can add until 10 grams of Potassium Bromide to increase warm tones
    For all the lovers of warm tones paper developer here there is a tab in French with interesting paper developers.

    There is also Kodak's DK-93. From Anchell's Darkroom Cookbook:

    p-aminiphenol HCl 5 grams
    Sod. Sulfite 30g
    HQ 2.5g
    Sod. Metaborate 20g
    Pot. Bro. .5g

    For warm tones on paper, use w/o dilution dev for 2 min. For colder tones, 2x the Sod. Metabortate and dev for 1-2 min.

    You can also use this dev for film.

    I included this dev as it may use more readily available chems.

    I've mixed this one too (from Kodak's published recipe that I posted on Apug a while back - now it's gone). I found it an interesting and useful developer.

    The Hydroquinone and Phenidone in ID-78 are readily available - as are the Potassium Bromide, Sodium Sulfite and Sodium Carbonate.

    Tom,
    I found a previous post about Ansco 130 and it was a response to me. Have you done just Glycin in TEA? I use glycin in a couple formulas...EC

    Thank you one and all for your responses. APUG is such a wonderful source of photographic experience and wisdom.

    I'll give the Kodak DK-93 and the ID-78 a try. I have Anchell's publication.

    Greetings for the festive season -- it's getting hot here, but good beach weather!

    Lyn
