Perhaps as things move forward and digital
movie stuff easier to upload, I’ll make a video next time a make a batch
of liquid ferric and you can see just how easy it is. The cost does go down
very fast AFTER the quantity of raw chemicals goes up a bit. If you just get
500 g of Ferrous Ammonium Sulfate, that might be around $65 but a 2.5 Kg is
only $ 105 or so and 25kg is cheaper still. Artcraft might be able to repackage
it if enough people wanted to get some.
I believe that I posted the stuff on the
site that was mentioned early by someone.

Yes, that's what I was wondering about heating the
water too much. I was being on the safe side, so actually wasn't heating it
enough, I think-- but that's good to know. Thanks.
Saving money is good. I would like to start mixing
some of this from scratch-- well, at least I think about mixing some of it from
scratch. It does make sense, but it also makes me a little nervous.

from component chems and save even more money. It too is easy.
Yes, you can
heat the water too much. Heat will turn your ferric to ferrous before you have
a chance to use it.

lord no. Not for a minute would I attempt to make anything from scratch--
except maybe a pound cake.
No, I'm just
trying to mix up the ferric oxalate powder with distilled water and would like
to know the amounts to use-- water to powder, and can you ever heat the water
too much? Just having a hard time here, so wonder if I'm doing something wrong

I've always been told this was a difficult process because of the compound's
instability. There are detailed instructions at http://e.neilsen.home.att.net/FerricOxalate.html I've read
again and again that this was something to buy rather make because of the time
it takes and that the relative cost savings is neglible.
Did I misunderstand your question?
