    And I have "home brewed" a bleach for Cibachrome years ago, but not with the new paper with extra layers.

    Ok, but you're different because you're a Photo Engineer. For all the threads about it here and elsewhere in the last 10-15 years, only one person achieved any success at all and then they disappeared without getting close to perfecting it, IIRC. And also IIRC, he's the only one who even got as far as actual printing! I remember he posted some early results and that was the end of it.
    Nice work. You have a very talented computer.

    Yes Wayne, I remember. And he published some formulas as I did from old memory. He may have used some of my ideas as well. IDK. But, nevertheless, this work is no harder than mixing a developer. It is knowing how much of what to use. And the chemicals are not too exotic. There is KI, Sulfamic Acid (drain cleaner), Sulfuric Acid (battery acid), KBr, and a few other odds and ends. Then there is the catalyst, which must be one of several choices and this is the critical chemical. These can be bought just like Metol or HQ from chemical suppliers once you know what to buy.
