Re: Agyrotype

When was Don's original message posted? I never received it.

Anyhow, if chlorinated water was your problem, I would use a 5 gallon storage tank and leave water in it overnight before use. By the way, this is how I found out: we were picking blueberries at the Happy Berries, a pick your own berry farm. The water from their cooler was particularly sweet tasting, and we were told that it was simply tap water "aged" for 24 hours.

Just give it enough time for the chlorine to escape, Don.

Hi Don,

Is distilled water available in your area? I use distilled water for all my photographic chemical solutions. One less variable to worry about, given what they put into the water these days.

Hi Folks,

Anyone out there doing Argyrotypes?
If so how do you deal with the requirement of non-chlorinated water for
processing? This requirement is really putting a damper on my working with
the process.
