    Re: Fresh dry plates in a variety of sizes

    I've made 5"x7" plates available for purchase at my Etsy store, if you were interested in that size.

    edit: Also added options for other sizes (I'm starting to replenish my supply of glass, in case you were wondering).

    Thanks,
    Jason

    By the way, I was asked about storage of plates. Here is a link to the archival envelopes that I use. They also have archival boxes specifically for plates:

    Here's a fun picture. This is a set of glass plates that are prepped for coating. The smallest plate is full plate size. That's 6.5" x 8.5".

    The largest is 20" x 12".

    Lol. The round plate is where some of the action happens. I have two of those which I picked up from the "still good pile" at the local dump. I have been tempted to coat it, but it serves as a level surface for some of the test plates while the emulsion cools and sets.

    My wife suggested I create a facebook page for my "shop". So if you're on facebook you can click on this link to like the page and see updates on my plate making activities.

    I figure it's an easy way to share info with the actual people interested in keeping track. Compared to cottage industries of the 1800s, it saves postage/ overhead costs of mailing fliers and taking out ads .

    Jason, can you educate me - the wash seems long, but I have no experience with dry (or wet) plates.
    Is the wash just to remove any absorbed fixer, as with film or paper? If so, I would think that dry plate emulsion will absorb very little and the glass plate will absorb none.
    Is there another reason for the (long) wash that is unique to dry plate emulsion?
