WOW...You got them to give up the secret formula... You ARE good!

We've used this at Peters Valley Craft Center off and on for years & it
works pretty well.
Please make sure what ever you're coating is clean...really clean....
& have a great time. I know your students will..

OK finally talked with Rockland. I called sales and not technical help--that
was the trick :)

Packet 1. Dektol
Packet 2. sodium sulfate
Sol 3. IS 50% ammonium thiocyanate.

So we'll see how it goes tomorrow with 18 students learning this process at
once--with digital contact negatives no less :) Chris

PS Etienne, I reread your post and now realize you did know it was all mixed
together--sorry for the confusion of my last post. But what you said seems
accurate given what I have seen of tintypes and their characteristic
whiteish appearance. Thanks.
