Sometime over the next year I have decided to try and make my own emulsion and coat onto film. Right now, I am just beginning to collect parts, pieces and materials to do this. Naturally, wanting to make this as difficult as possible, I'm going to start with 35mm. 120 or sheet film would surely be easier but I don't have a camera for it. (That might change but it's not happening right now)

Clear 35mm film leader is readily available. Assuming I can figure out a way to "sub" the material, does this leader work well as a base? My plan at the moment is to use the subbing recipe from the Wall textbook but am definitely open to other suggestions if anyone can point me at a good formula.
