        I have not been following this thread...forgive me. I will be in the Fort Lauderdale area the third week of September. Anyone know where I can get pure collodion? Most pharmacies sell it with additives to make it more flexible like camphor and such. I use it to clean first surface mirrors such as in single lens reflex cameras. I paint it on, wait for it to dry, then carefully life one corner and peal it off. Any additives leave a greasy looking film on the mirrors. I learned this caring for first surface mirrors when doing holography at GE in the early 70s.
        Alzo, any alt photo shows to be seen in the Ft. Lauderdale area?

        Are you saying a similar sized package is a similar price? Cool. The more
choice the better.
