I finally have the time and funds to embark on some handmade photo materials, and the idea of Albumen plates seems pretty interesting.

Mark Osterman has a PDF online that seems to have some good instructions, and a search of Google Books pulls up some info from the ancient texts.

I guess what I'm asking for is a few things.
1.) Has anyone tried this before? If so, what was your experience?
2.) The silver bath - most recommendations seem to be around 9-10% silver nitrate in water, with some acetic acid. Is this infinitely usable and replenish able like Wet Plate baths?

Feedback / comments of any kind would be super!
