i was wondering if someone can answer a few questions for me about sistan.
i understand it has been used to undermine the effects and protect paper from
pollutants and atmospheric contaminants, and some suggest a way
of archivally stabilizing prints instead of using selenium or other toners.
i was wondering if anyone can tell me if i soak a print in sistan,
instead of selenium toner, if it will alter the composition of the print ( like toners do)
what sort of toxicity and disposal issues are related to sistan.
agfa isn't around anymore, who makes sistan now ?
i would rather not use selenium if i don't have to -
