Thanks, very helpful.
Thanks for the link to the recipes. I hoped it was easier. I am a bit worried about buying so many different components and weighting them to half gram, then having to adjust pH. I hoped it was a bit like preparing a cocktail. I think I'll go for a ready-made solution.
Thanks for the information. The site is actually www.morco.uk.com (morco.uk.co sells kitchenware).
They have a "special offer".
I am going to ask them if they can send to Italy.
In the meanwhile, please tell me what to do with the starter-replenisher dilemma. I use the chemistry "one-shot" with my Jobo (actually "two-shots" as I immediately reuse once). I remember I only need one of those, which IIRC should be the "replenisher", but I am not sure.
Should I just buy the replenisher, or should I buy both and mix the two?
Please keep the information coming :-) The problem might not be solved yet.
Thanks for the help
PS the roll came out completely black. That should point out that the colour developer is fine. Is there a way to test it to be sure? I don't have a first developer at the moment therefore I cannot develop a test roll.
My colour developer has two components to be mixed. The first bottle contains "p-phenylendiamine derivative" the second bottle contains potassium hydroxide. Is this two-component composition safe as far as oxidation is concerned?
They both look "pretty", limpid and clear.
The first developer looked opaque when undiluted so can I just trust my colour developer from mere visual inspection?
