Well, interesting . I put together my supplies from a variety of sources. the ink was from bostick & sullivan, various brushes from the hardware store (used for faux painting walls) as well as tiles, tape , cleaning supplies and rollers (check Gene Laughters site and/or video). Misc. stuff from art supply stores.
Mix my own fixer from scatch, using basic developer LPD highly diluted. Mix own bleaches from scatch.
Total cost no more than 225 dollars.
