Zebra 4×5 Dry Plate Tintypes are Thin Black Aluminium Plates coated with ultra fine grain Silver Gelatine emulsion that is sensitive only to UV and blue light with nominal sensitivity of ISO 2. They deliver an impressive positive image with the finest grain quality at extreme resolution. Overall they are very similar to a more well known Wet Plate version with a few advantages. Because they are coated with Silver Gelatine emulsion which is then dried, plates can be used for months and developed whenever you desire just like with Standard Dry Plates. No need for rushing and portable darkrooms. They can be loaded into Zebra Wet Plate Holders straight away as well as in Zebra Dual Dry Plate Holder together with this adapter to lift the focal plane.

Plates are completely hand made so each one of them is inspected a few times thru the process to assure maximum quality! Check description below for developing instructions.

In the box there are 10 Zebra 4×5 Tintype Plates together with easy to follow developing instructions.

How the positive is achieved?

Normal processing for Zebra Dry Plates results in a black negative but since with Zebra Tintypes emulsion is coated on black surface a special developer mixture is needed. Your goal is to make the negative white and you can achieve that by adding Ammonium Thiocyanate to the standard zebra developer (Kodak HC-110). Exact recipe goes like this:

  • Mix 4ml of Kodak HC-110 into 300ml of water and then add in 3g of Ammonium Thiocyanate

Very well made product

Love these. First plates out of the gate came out great. Repeatable and predictable results. The emulsion is clean and even. Developing is easier than glass plated IMO. Will order again!

Thank you Holger. Glad you are enjoying these!
