Silver Bromide Gelatin Resources
The Light Farm
Denise Ross runs this site which contains all manner of information related to silver bromide gelatin emulsions. It has a number of different gelatin dry plate emulsion recipes worth trying, including an older version of Mark Osterman's MO-1880 recipe that has since been revised in Christopher James, Book of Alternative Photographic Processes, 3rd Edition. Use the newer recipe as the old one calls for the use of chrome alum, a hardener which should ONLY be added to emulsion being re-melted for pouring plates to be used in a hot environment (85ºF or above).
