    "Cibachrome" and "Ilford Cibachrome" paper, old. Any interest?

    I am in need of some freezer space, so I just moved out all of this "paper" (actually more like plastic). It is a small freezer's worth that came along with some chemicals and black and white paper that I bought on Craigslist, and I can't imagine the next time I will get around to Ilfochrome printing to try out this old material.

    I have several boxes and packets of this paper, 8x10 and 11x14. Most are opened and partially used.

    Ciba printing material is not known to age well, so you cannot expect to get "good" prints with this. It may not even work at all! I planned on pinholin' with the paper, but never got around to it.

    However, if there is any interest despite the keeping properties of Ilfochrome, let me know, and I will inventory the stuff. If no interest, it is getting trashed.

    Once I get it inventoried, and if anyone wants it, I would consider a small trade in exchange (some film or whatever), or even $$$ if you are feeling generous. In any case, the taker is responsible for shipping, and agrees to take it as is with the understanding that it may not work at all.

    Why don't you open up the boxes, take pictures to show the sheets in the boxes, and sell it on ebay?

    I'm interested but slightly slower than others. I just want a box or two to play around with.

    I'd LOVE to have some! I have an unopened Ilfochrome P30 kit of unknown vintage that may or may not work, and I have wanted to get some paper to try it on...

    There's a thread started on creating a supplement dye bleach somewhere. I still need paper though.

    Wow! More interest than I thought for hopelessly out of date paper.

    I foolishly forgot to mention one of the most important facts: These are OPENED and INCOMPLETE boxes!

    I will go through tonight and count what is left.

    Yes, please let us know! I would like to have at least a little bit to play with before I shell out for fresh stuff!

    Be very careful with the bleach with old chemistry.

    I got six liters of the stuff, but none of it was usable. The bleach powder had actually liquefied in the bags and had started eating (burning) through the metal bag! Lucky for the fact that the bleach pouches were made double layered, with a layer of plastic on top of the foil.

    Make sure you dispose of your stuff at the proper facility!

    I couldn't care less. I just want a few sheets to play with without spending $300 on a new box of 8x10.
