Wet Plate Darkroom Reference
This handy little "collodion cookbook" was designed from the start to be used in the darkroom. Its wire bound spine will lay flat on the bench, keeping the pages you're looking at, open and accessable. Its durable plastic covers help protect it from spills, while its heavy weight pages stand up to the frequent use it's bound to get! Compact in size (5.5 x 8.5 inches) and packed with just the information you need, when you need it, it's the perfect book to ride along in your gear bag so it's always close at hand when you want it.
In keeping with the theme of what you need, when you need it, the first pages of the book begin with forumla tables and recipes for everything from collodion through varnish. Additional sections include specific details for mixing and working with collodion, silver nitrate, and fixers. It concludes with trouble shooting tips and handy safety information for many of the chemical components commonly used in the wet plate process.
