    Just what I wanted to hear. I have been holding off purchasing it.

    Is there aging of the collodion involved?

    How does the Sodiumthiosulfate work compared to KCn, besides the fact that it will not kill you?

    How long is the kit good for if not used?

    I'm looking for instruction in wet plate but getting this kit sounds great...I'd like to learn first before cracking it open.

    Also if anyone has suggestions for tutoring in wet plate for a total beginner please let me know!

    Don't forget to have a look at the APUG Video section! There are a number of videos regarding wet plate listed there.

    Thanks, folks.

    It's all useful to me. Right now the priority is finding someone for one-on-one instruction. If I'm honest, I'll admit that's my ideal way of learning especially on something I have no previous foundation in. I also have one of Ty Guillory's wonderful hand-made cameras and would like to have my initial learning happen on that.

    Good info, and thank you again!
