    Hello,

    My firts product for the autochrome :



    Microscope, black of fume, damar gum.
    I am waiting for the "Sanford rubber cement". And it miss me to begin the second varnish, "Toluène", "Ethyle acétate" and...Louis Lumière call this (in french) : "filtre étoffe". If someone have an idea about this "filtre étoffe" don't hesiate to tell me.

    Here is for the moment.

    Awesome Shaz. And a Leitz no less! Sure is pretty...

    Filtre étoffe, is it just "filter fabric"? Or is this the sieve for starch grains?

    Hello Holmburgers,

    Yes, for the Leitz i have a lot of luck i know . But it's not my .
    "Filtre étoffe" is not for the patatoe starch...it's for filter the damar gum after have it dissolve in the Ethyle Acétate. It's for keep the wax of damar gum in this filter. It must resist to the acétate éthyle ... I don't know if the ethyle acétate is agressive.

    Black of Fume = Carbon Black, obtained from the smoke of burning tallow candles. Please be careful because some carbon blacks will cause bad things to happen to modern photographic emulsions. We learned this during construction of the instant film packs which contained carbon black in the coating and in the processing goo.

    Hello PE,

    Thank you for this. I learn something .

    I hope that my is the same that Louis Lumière. For me and for the moment it's "not important"... i just want to try to make "one" autochrome...just one .
    Do you know a substitute of carbon black please PE ?

    Thank you in advance.

    Single or one autochrome will cost you 500 euros or more. You need to buy a red dye costing you 5 grams 200 euros.

    With this money , you could buy 10 autochromes or more 100 years of age.

    I think you must make a glass screen and another glass for panchro emulsion. You might face the empty side of your screen to panchro coated glass.

    With this invention , you could make lots of autochromes not single.

    And your if your emulsion is not matched to 120 years old one , your result will not be an autochrome but something different.

    Its like lieing yourself.

    Hello Umut,

    I don't really understang all the things you write , but if i have well understand a little, someone can give me panchromatic emulsion.
    Do you speack about this ?

    If you speack about the dyes..i know that it will cost me 275 euros. And i can have 25 grams each.

    Why do you say lieing : what does that mean ?

    Let me explain

    NOT every panchromatic emulsion GIVES YOU exact ORIGINAL Autochrome COLORS.
