There are plenty of people who are doing Ambrotypes and Tintypes (same process on black japanned tin) the traditional way. There are texts available and workshops you can attend, and resources for the supplies needed. Why would there be a need to replicate the results with a gelatine emulsion, when you can do it the "historically correct" way?
