    Platinum/palladium chemicals in the UK?

    I wanted to try pt/pl printing, and I don't want to order chemistry from the USA, because it is too expensive to risk posting it across the ocean; and then I am not sure how customs will process the chemistry. I found ammonium iron (III) oxalate from Silverprint, but I am not sure where to get palladium/platinum salts.

    I am sure there are plenty of platinum printers in the UK.
    Where do you get your chemicals from?

    Bostick & Sullivan has a UK distributor. Send them an email and ask.

    Hi,

    As far as I am aware (I could be wrong of course) you can buy the ferric Oxalate, EDTA and chemicals used for developing from Silverprint but the only place to buy the the actual Platinum and Palladium chemicals is from Bostick and Sullivan. I have bought both Platinum and Palladium from them in the past and all arrived well packaged and within a week or so. You do get stung for import duty though!

    As has already been suggested Bostick & Sullivan is one of the only places an individual in the U.K can purchase platinum & palladium salts for DOP.
