Ron, Is not mixing emulsions on a bench, like some of us are doing, "arcane"?
I thought that keeping alive these "arcane" practices is the whole point of your Wokshops,The Light Farm. and this very Forum. If not, lets all just purchace digital camers, the latest Photoshop and "To Hell with It"!
Just for the record: I for one have never said that I had any knowledge of Emulsion making, other than what I learned from you and a few others. All I said is that I was "practiced" and "Pracice" includes a bunch of failed attempts.
Joy anf Cheerio to All,
Bill
