    Gold Chloride

    Does anyone know where you can buy small quantities of Gold Chloride to make toner? I have the recipe from Tim Rudman's book but the websites for Silverprint and Retro dont list it.

    Cheers

    Photographer's Formulary is the place. They've a huge
    assortment of photographic chemicals and small quantities
    are where they surpass the competition. Of course large
    quantities as well.

    BTW, have you checked out Nelson's Gold Toner? Fantastic
    milage from very little gold. Dan

    Currently, B&S has the best price I could find on 1% Gold Chloride solution ($30 for 100ml), which is what I use for toning Kallitypes.

    It's been about $30 a gram for a long time. It won't get any cheaper.

    It's really expensive right now, because the price of gold is high.

    I've seen $35/g recently.

    You might try mostlymetals.com. He tries to order in bulk and passes on the savings.

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.
