We look forward to seeing your results, Robert.
As for Fool's Gold--the developer is pretty straight forward and acts just like Gold, hence the name. With Kallitypes, Athenatypes and the like, you should get pleasing results and a quarter the cost. Good luck.
Edit: also, Bostick and Sullivan have fumed silica on hand at a great price as well, plus they can help you out on the phone with any questions. Feel free to call them up for supplies. Not trying to be a promoter, but I know the stuff there is pure, and the Amazon stuff makes me nervous when applying my time and serious $$$ to prints.
Edit edit: Barry, please post your results with the VanDyke. We have discussed it briefly (I'm a believer in VD but others aren't so enthusiastic) and haven't had to time to test. I would love to know how it goes.
