Instructions: 

If the kit has been shipped to you, the chemistry is in powdered form. Please purchase distilled water from your nearest petrol/gas station and fill the two bottles until the top and shake well for the powder to dissolve completely. To use the chemistry, please mix Part A and Part B in equal quantities in the beaker provided. Use the pipette to draw the right amount of chemistry from each bottle and mix the two together. When mixed together, the chemical becomes light-sensitive and will remain usable for a few hours, please work indoors in subdued light. 

Please note: Wood + Glass easels and Hydrogen Peroxide is available for purchase at the CPB Foundation offices for in-person pickups only. For in-person orders please write to shop@chennaiphotobiennale.com or call +91 6383 135 139
