    ILYA I think you mean you despair because your replies have disappeared D:

    As Ron indicates making the emulsion is not a problem at all. It's more about getting it coated.

    Sometimes we think too hi-tech, when you look at the quality of the early silver gelatin papers you also have to remember the coating machinery was not very sophisticated. If you've seen Browning's photo's of the EFKE plant you'll understand what I mean.

    If your replies were relevant to this question, I've moved them to this thread. If they were related to Lodima, I've left them in the other thread.

    Yes, that's it

    Thanks, Ian

    What I need is a slow chloride byrita paper and lots of it to continue my search for a holy grail

    Three years has past since the anouncment of the paper beeing gone and we still have nothing close to it

    I don't mind waiting for a quality paper but I don't want to die before I get it ,that is my despair .

    now I am desappearing

    For a number of reasons slow chloride emulsions & papers are relatively easier to make.

    Some people go backwards to re-invent the Wheel, perhaps the project Htims A Leahcim is involved with is one of those.

    There are a number of ways to skin a cat, and that's also true with emulsion manufacture. It's just over 30 years since I researched emulsion manufacture, and began making a fast projection speed emulsion commercially, but I've not forgotten my learning curve.

    A good chloride paper is very achievable.

    I can go thru a box of 100 sheets in a 10-11 hour printing session , 20-30 negatives , it's just not feasible for me to start coating , I need to print not make paper , once in a while I could print a special negative on something different , but in general work flow Azo was a king...

    Flashing with Azo is unbelievable

    What I am saying is I am a supporter of anybody that is able to give me what I need , it's a selfish thing of course,

    if someone could produce platinum/palladium paper that I could use out of a box , I'd be all over it...

    At the moment and well in the foresee-able future I'm not interested in re-starting making silver based emulsions.

    However I will assist, and help anyone else in any way. As long as they don't write backwards

    I agree that the work flow with Azo is King! If I could get 8x10, 11x14 and 8x20 Azo type paper I would be loving life. The ease of printing and quality of the prints I've doe so far on my small stock of Azo has made me very happy.

    I use Azo paper only, I have a bit of paper in both grade 2/3 in 8x10, but I haven't for my 8x20 prints, so if I could get 8x10 and 8x20 paper I would be loving. I would pay $2-4 for sheet.
    I had put my order for M.P. paper, in both the format I use(and I hope to use earlier), but if I have another choise I 'll use both of them.
