The prices are very nice in the US (I wish I had
included a kg on my last order). Our prices are as
high as $60 for a kg! If it's not too much trouble, I
prefer to make it myself for around $6 per kg. (and
spend the remaining $54 for watercolor papers and
film). Any other comments from those who has mixed
their own sodium citrate?

BTW, Sandy can you please lead me to an article about
how to make potassium oxalate?

As I will not print for an exhibition, do you think I
can omit the consistency requirements and just tone
with the same toner by visual inspection and
prolonging the toning time until it's non-practical?
(non-practical = more than 15mins.)
