RE: Ferric Oxalate or Ferric Ammonium Oxalate


I've used a lot of FAO for making ziatypes and Ferric Oxalate for making DOP
palladium and never had a problem with either.

I assume chemically FAO is considered to be more stable than FO so from that
respect one might assume that it is a better choice than FO.

After looking at some very beautiful prints made by Loris Medici 
using FAO I am evaluating the prospect of shifting from FO to FAO. A 
recent major lack of inconsistency in results from batches of of FO 
motivates in part this interest. Mike Ware recommends FAO, noting 
that FO is a very ill-defined substance.

Just wondering what some of the other Pt./Pd. printers on this list 
think, pros and cons FO versus FAO?
