Nice one Ag-bromide. I enjoyed watching and learned something about hand colouring as well

Default But where to get dyes?

I used to have great enjoyment hand-colouring B&W prints a few years ago. But either I'm putting in the wrong search terms or nobody makes them any longer - where to get the dyes?

Might depend on what you mean by dyes. I must admit I haven't seen kits consisting of new photodyes for a while but part used or sometimes unused dyes will come up on e-bay.

If on the other hand you were using the word dyes to mean the generic term for handcolouring materials then Firstcall Photographic were selling Marshalls kits(oils and pencils I think) until recently.

So the materials are still available although it is now even more of a niche product than it was say 50 years ago. I think that handcolouring probably took a serious knock when printing from colour negs became much cheaper in the late 60 and early 70s but I suspect that it is holding its own or even making a comeback amongst hobbyist who see it as an artistic offshoot in its own right which it is in my opinion.

A handcoloured print is not a poorman's colour print but is unique in its own right and cannot be replicated by what some regard as the catch-all process which shall be nameless here on FADU
