    Yes... Yes you did.

    Don't forget, however, you can tone with Platinum too!

    (you can also tone with selenium, so there's not excuse)

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    I hate to say it, but that's nothing compared to the Pt and Pd stash I have.

    I thought about starting a new thread then chuckled when I saw gold chloride as a mere $13 ($17 in today's dollar).

    If anyone can find less than $45 per gram (per artcraft.com) please post where you are sourcing it...

    There is always the possibility of accidently making fulminates of certain metals such as silver and gold when dissolving them in the presence of nitric acid. These compounds are explosive and extremely shock sensitive.

    B&S' price on 100ml or 1% has not changed at least recently. Theirs was the best price I found last time I was hunting Gold Chloride.

    For the love of God, though, do not try making AgCl3 by recycling gold scraps and connectors. It is dangerous, dirty and not worth the effort - even at these higher prices - despite the fact that it questionably works.
    All this has happened before, and all this will happen again.

    B&S is looking a few bucks cheaper than Artcraft ($45) and B&S ($42.35), I've never ordered from either, when I cart Artcraft I get a grand tot of $56 w ship and tax. Is B&S shipping/tax less than $11ish anyone know? When I cart an item at B&S it won't give me a grand tot unless I fill in all the stuff....

    Edit, I created an account at B&S and was able to get a quote, B&S takes the cake as the lowest $51.05 for 100ml of a 1% sol (aka 1 gram)....

    If anyone can beat that.....chime in

    There are other ways to go about it. When I was kid, a buddy and me would lower a big sluice box over
    a cliff to some untouched part of the riverbed, then spend all day bucket-brigade style. At the end of the day we had about an ounce of gold. It was hard work, and at gold worth about $20 an ounce back
    then, was hardly worth it. Times have changed.
