Correct. One needs specialty marbles and membranes and dead-blow
hammers and inverted shelving and perimeter-verifiable-impact-lid-
adjustment tables and temperature gauges, not to mention hazmat
pants....I said NOT to mention hazmat pants!
I use the wine box for all my finishes.
It's great. I can mix the paint by just slapping the membrane on a
bench. It elongates the storage of all my finishes.
The way my wife and brother in law go through these boxes I have an
I use soda bottles with the top cut off to fill them (makes a one time
funnel) squeeze the air out, then store.
The best method of storing I have used. No rusted lids, no stuck lids.
If I can't get the stuff to remix, I pour it all out in a can and mix,
then pour it back. Rarely needed, but occasionally does happen.
One more advantage is the small storage size.

I've got a few concertina bottles in my darkroom for storing film
They will collapse from 1 litre down to about 1/2 litre. Works fine with
fluid but I'm not sure about gloss paint. Can you imagine trying to
whack the lid on an concertining paint container ;-)
Ah, now, I'm hoping to move within the next few weeks. The place I
intend moving to has a large, windowless area just the right size for an
enlarger and the associated bits, and I do enjoy messing about with
proper B&W film. Much more satisfying than manipulating bits, IMO.
But will it take a 8"x10" enlarger?
I changed in 2003 (shot my last film), my enlargers(2) are still in the
darkroom with a wet bench, colour processor and film processor.
I haven't looked back, better for my health not breathing or touching
I can digitize old film formats, manipulate to any film texture and
print to 24" wide on the Epson printer.
But I'm thinking of resurrecting my 120 panoramic cameras and the E6
processor. i don't like the feel of digital images.
Possibly not, but I don't use bigger than 120 rollfilm, anyway.
Another excellent reason. Which reminds me...

I know for a fact that the detail inside the silhouette couldn't
possibly be reproduce on *any* digital printout. Black on darker black,
it is, and *very* subtle.
Well yes they can now - my printer has 4 blacks, three are used at
anyone time, which enable you to reproduce a very good grey scale.(Epson
7900 11 inks) unlike the others that mix colours to imitate black. I
think that the blacks would show better detail than the Ciba, which I
found too contrasty.
