    Several years ago I wanted graduated filters to filter the sky (yellow and orange) and not really affect the land (for b&w film). I don't recall finding what I wanted so I bought a couple of clear resin filters and made my own with RIT dye. I heated the dye on the stove and kept dunking until I got the tones I wanted. Although it was time consuming it wasn't costly and they worked. I don't recall the brand of clear resin filter but they are 4x4 and fit a holder I already had.

    I mount my 4x4 Wratten filters behind the lens on my LF cameras. I had always rigged up something to hold them. Now LEE has come out with a holder that will fit on the front of the lens as well as the back of the lens. I bought one. It is sturdy plastic. It holds the filter onto the lens with a thick rubber band, which can work on the front, too.

    It is inexpensive, about $20. They also sell some 4x4 frames to hold the filters.

    I recommend the item, but the holder is pretty big so it may not fix in a 4x5 camera.
