Although I use many ready-prepared processing solutions, I also mix up quite a few of my own from raw chemicals.
This is partly due to their non-availability as pre-mixed solutions and partly because I’ve always enjoyed cooking and following/amending recipes.
This page is the lead-in to a series of published formulae, indicated in the menu bar above. I may not use all of these, but I put them here for easy reference anyway.
You might also like to check out the Kodak Formulary if you like experimenting with old methods.
Disclaimer: NO chemicals are ‘safe’; the formulae provided here are for reference only. Mix at your own risk and make sure you are fully conversant with the nature of the chemicals involved.
If in doubt, consult the MSDS for each one and handle them with extreme care.
