    The prints are so beautiful! However, seeing chris 101 talk about uranium nitrate has cured my desire to tone prints with it.. Good thing its expensive being that dangerous.

    I am now interested... Although if Orange tones were attainable with table salts would we be so interested?

    After more reading it does not sound that dangerous. Although where do you pour the old bath? I wouldn't want a $1,000,000 superfund clean-up fee pinned on me.

    I live in the USA and love English, Swedish, and French cars... the machine shop I deal with said why not rebuild a Chevy Small block like a normal person... I said. If only I lived in Sweden, then I'd love American cars.

    If table salt could do the same thing, then I definitely would play with it. I've got a Mcgaver streak a mile wide! However, it wouldn't be as cool as saying it was made with uranium. I haven't handled the stuff myself, but I am willing to accept what Chris101 says about the respect it deserves.

The hazard associated with uranium, vanadium and other heavy metals is liver and kidney damage, not the extremely slight radioactivity the depleted uranium nitrate has. While the pure compound does click a geiger counter nicely, the prints do not register anything at all above the background radiation.

    This thread really go in my head. I dreamt I was manking yellow orange prints with this process and when I dipped my prints in the Uraniim Nitrate bath they smolder and burt into flames on the edges and then extinguished as they were submirged.

    Anyone have an answer about the ramefications of throwing the used bath down the drains?
    Otherwise I don't think the process seems all that hazardus seeing that modern Uranium Nitrate is made from depleted Uranium. I use a respirator or go outside to mix even D-76 or Dektol. I don't think the Uranium bath emitts fumes like a Mercuyr bath would.

    Uranyl Nitrate can be had from Vanbar for those of us in Australia.
