    Pictoriographica black glass!

    I recently received 4X5 Black Glass from PICTORIOGRAPHICA for ambrotypes

    Nicely finished edges, black glass which is dark enough to barely view a bright light through it, I wonder if it may be good for ND filter?

    and the 4X5 plates fit my 5X7 Chroma Wet plate holder with a spacer

    as usual nothing to show here yet

    I have had some issues of my own making

    How is this any different that the smooth black glass I can buy at my local stained glass shop?

    Dunno, but not everybody has a stained glass store nearby

    I have looked online for black glass and found nothing in big sheets

    Glass is glass. What is it's price? I searched for it on the linked site to no avail.

    There was a preorder offered on this forum

    Jason has fulfilled that

    The rest is now his business

    One reason I wanted black glass is, it can be cleaned, reused, if needed, unlike black Tin

    I was eager to buy some of this glass, but decided the advantages weren’t worth the price. A shame, really, as I was looking forward to making ambrotypes with it.

    Yeah I wish things were free, too. Unfortunately I can't sell it at a loss or I would. At least I don't have to make a living off this stuff.

    If it's not different, then offer it to folks who are looking for it. The wet plate community has been searching for this stuff for years.

    I suspect, however, that it is different: the black stained glass I've found has surface texture -- ripples like water -- and is thicker. Most wet plate shooters I know will say they don't like that stuff.
