    Hi, I would like to try making some tintype or ferrotype images but dont really know where to start. Have any of you tried it before? If yes, I would really appreciate if you could offer any advise. Can Liquid Light be used on the metal sheets or is there specific chemistry for the emulsion?

    Thanks in advance,
    Kevin

    Go here http://www.collodion.com/forum/default.asp well sorry but it appears there is a problem on this board and they are not taking new members. I would try searching google for wet plate process to find the recipes.

    I've limited access because of forum spammers. I need to update the forum software but haven't yet.

    If you want access, send me your name and email address.

    Regards,
    Quinn

    Hi Quinn - would love to see you update your forum so it's easy for others to join. I took a look and it's obviously an active and informative site. I'd love to be able to point folks from it from here as a resource. :)

    I wish you continued good luck with it.

    Absolutely! :D This is a process I've not tried personally, though I love the look. I really enjoy reading about it and seeing others' work.

    Some lovely stuff there. Keep up the good work!
