Make your own POP paper using the Formulary's Salted-Plain Paper Kit. Formulary Salted (Plain) Paper Kit is a modern version of Fox Talbot's printing paper. Salted paper prints have a beautiful delicacy in the lighter tones while the deeper shadows seem flat. The original paper surface is preserved and has an effect on the final print this process is the forerunner of Albumen, Collodion, and Gelatin.

Was able to make some beautiful salted paper prints with the materials. Everything arrived safely (nothing opened). I didn't see much success with the gold toning bath, but that could definitely be user error. I would also stress thorough washing of prints before the fix as my fix got exhausted much quicker than anticipated and I think that was why. I made only about 30 prints before fix had to be tossed and the silver nitrate was nearly gone by then too. My favorite part about this kit is that the chemicals are already pre-weighted to the exact amount you need, so leftovers or mess! All you really need is 1 gallon of distilled water. Great for beginners who want to test out the process!

When I opened the box there was loose silver nitrate crystals inside the instruction sheets. Luckily I saw it and didn't touch them or rub my eyes. I'm disappointed in this purchase and the way it was packed. Usually everything is fine.
