Funny how you can answer your own questions partially at least..........re the paper I think I have been confusing the Bromoil Process with The Oil Pigment process which uses a gelatin coating of paper procedure...........dont you love those ahaaa moments........will probably mean tho, coz I like to keep it simple and doable down here in the colonies.....that maybe oil pigment will be the way to go...if bromoil paper is such an issue.....
