Tintype is an old process and is considered to be an art form. Developed around 1856, many members of the public had their first portraits captured using this process.

Images were reproduced on metals, so tintypes were relatively inexpensive, and produced fairly quickly. The picture looked old as it was made due to the yellow emulsion colour, something that today's darkroom users find attractive about this alternative process.

Rockland's Tintype Kit often referred to as a Parlour Kit, is an authentic re-creation of the tintype process, a type of instant photography, favourites in your great-grandparent's day.

These are safe, dry-plate tintypes, also known as ferrotypes, like those found in antique shops, not modern imitations. Plates are thin enough to cut with scissors to fit inside any camera. The kit contains everything you need to make tintypes (or ambrotypes if coated on glass.)

You get eight 4 x 5-inch matte black anodised aluminium plates, AG-Plus emulsion for coating, special tintype developer, fixer and complete instructions for use in the kit.

Repeat supplies of plates, emulsion and developer are all available from us.
