Please treat all following chemical recipes with caution and use your common sense when mixing!
I will not be held responsible for any harm/ loss caused by anyone’s mis-use of these recipes.
The following information and recipes are from the volume “fotochemicaliën en recepten” by J.J. Hansma en E. Van Beugen, Focus n.v., Haarlen, 1967 (10th edition)
Even though I would recommend this volume to all of us interested in darkroom work, not everyone speaks Dutch – and even though I am sure many great books will be available in English, I have found that many of them will provide the reader with plenty of darkroom tips and trips, but not the actual recipes to mix up their chemicals. Anal as I am in regards to providing order to information, I will aim to gather more recipes in this section as they will become available to me. Please feel free to comment or e-mail me any of your own recipes!
