Measure 10g of Potassium Ferricyanide and add water to make it up to 100ml.

Make sure you fully dissolve both the chemicals.

In subdued light, mix the two solutions together.

This formula will make up 200ml of working solution, enough to coat roughly 50 sheets of A4. You should coat paper away from sunlight and leave to dry in the dark.
