Hi Everyone,

I have recently become interested in making my own silver gelatin based emulsion. I am located in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.

If there are any Canadians reading this who have made their own emulsions: Where do you get the material from (for example, Silver Nitrate)? I have contacted a few chemical supply companies, but because Silver Nitrate is listed as a dangerous good, it cannot be sold to Joe Q. Individual (me).

If possible, I would like to purchase this material in Canada (If it is this hard to get in Canada, I can't imagine what might happen if I try and send it across the border).
