After a little bit of research and discussion I can wrap up my silver stain experiments for the A&S Faire this spring. Just before Christmas I purchased a much more accurate gram/ounce/etc scale. I'm going to redo some of the samples in order to have accurate measurements.
I'm looking for a safe way to make a couple of the recipes. I hope to get to use a proper fume hood somewhere, but will suffice for a hot plate in the middle of a field somewhere!
