Camden, The smart money is on buying palladium chloride and then all the
salts that you want to mix; sodium, ammonium, lithium chlorides. These salts
can be bought in small amounts from Artcraft. There is no reason to convert
a bunch of palladium into one flavor if you don't need to. However, anytime
you try and mix very small quantities of some thing, the more accurate you
need to be. 

I mix up 10 ml bottles of it when I make it. The down side to storing any
lithium chloride is that it is very deliquescent (sp), it absorbs water from
the air and turn into a liquid. So keep it tightly seal and keep plenty of
silica gel packs around it.
