    Does AZO print out then if you expose it for that? (I have never used it, though I am planning on trying your recipe).

    Yes, Azo and all papers will print out. The formula controls the extent and color of the printout image.

    I use Ammonium chloride for a redder tone. I've also used plain old KBr as the salt. It seems faster and is much more black than either sodium or ammonium chloride.

    Yes, the chloride is mainly UV sensitive, but the bromide has a lot of visible (blue) sensitivity. You would therefore probably get more speed from bromides. But, this is what I meant by using sea salt. The bromide and iodide content would vary and contribute to speed and tone changes.

    John;

    I have seen Tokyo bay water. It looks like it can stand up and walk on its own. A lot of effluent used to run into that bay!

    In any event, my comments on any sea water are based on variability not on utiliity. If Tokyo bay water has a lot of mercury, then perhaps people using San Francisco bay water might not be able to duplicate the speed or tone and vice versa.

    hi ron


    hey says if anyone wants to use water from the tokyo bay,
    he will be happy to ship it to them

    i have a brackish stream, salt flats and a cove behind where i live
    i have wanted to use them for salt prints for the longest time ...
    maybe this fall, when the planets align and the moon is in aquarius
    (and a phone call to b+s ) i will start all the projects i have wanted to start ..

    ...
