    Anyone used this DIY method for formulating C-41 chemicals?

    Found this a while ago and keep coming back to it:

    Anyone tried it and found it to work well?

    Sure, I use alternative color for all my work and have been happy with it for about 30 years. PM me if you would like a copy of my notes on the subject.

    Your posted link is one of the key sites where I started thinking about c-41 home brew. Then I read a collection of old British Journal of Photography annuals, and trolled the rec.photo.darkroom archives.

    Then Maxwell was nice and sent me a collection of his recipes.

    My current C-41 formula is called Flexicolor Clone in past discussions on this site.

    I have DIY'ed RA-4 when I was processing in tubes.

    When I moved to a roller processor it oxidiazed too easily to work in the roller. I switched to Kodak RA-RT, and have been very satisfied with that product.

    I do still mix wierdo colour print formula from scratch occasionally to do things like EP/2 prints, and reversal experiments.
    my real name, imagine that.
