Hi, i've been wanting to do plate photography, even asked a few questions here. At first I was thinking of doing wet plate, but I think it would be simpler if I started dry plate first.

I'm planning to use this Kevin Klein recipe from the light farm due to the simplicity.

A few question though,
1. How I can make the 0,2 hypo solution?
2. If I can't find thymol is it possible to replace or discard it completely?
3. For developing the most available developer here are: a local clone of D76 and home brewed parodinal can either be used?

Best regards,

Dave
