This is a bit of a long shot, I'm wondering if anyone knows a UK source of ferric oxalate?

I have had no luck with silverprint or retrophotographic, they all suggest Bostick & Sullivan in the States but at $75 P&P it gets expensive quickly.

Anyone got any brainwaves?

Please.....

I don't think its available in the UK, you could mix you're own but you still have to source the compounds that make it up.
There's some on Ebay, and they ship internationally, but you must contact them first, might be cheaper than web sellers, I've no idea how much you need, postage is all about weight, you must get a big old lump of the stuff for $75 postage.
It cant be $20 for shipping 50g

Thanks for the help. $75 is their shipping for orders up to a certain weight, and I only want 50 grams :(

Might be a minimum order then with B&S.
Best bet is FleaBay then.
ArtCraft lists it @ £13 for 50g, still in the states but shipping might be cheaper..:shrug:

Air freight might be a 'mare, especially with HazMat and UN numbers and stuff, might turn out to be prohibitively expensive unless they agree to sneak it through customs.
