The formatting is lost on my machine. perhaps you can send it they way I send photographic formulas. Example below.

Kodak D-76
Water (at 125F or 52C).................750.0 mL
Metol....................................2.0 grams
Sodium Sulfite, desiccated.............100.0 grams
Hydroquinon..............................5.0 grams
Borax, granular..........................2.0 grams
Water to make............................1.0 Liter

I think this will stay pretty much intact.

Years ago a friend, Stan Griffiths, now deceased, passed on to me this Tektronix Blue paint formula.  He called it Williamsburg Blue.  He said it came from a commercial paint company but I really do not know how to read the formula.  Here it is:
B        4Y22        BlackC        33            Yellow oxideD        1Y29        GreenW        1Y32        WhiteE         1Y45        Blue
Y = ounces4Y = 4 ounces48 Points = 1 ounce
Another formula, this one from the late Dean Kidd, is as follows:
Base, E480 DBD Interior Satin                                  Shots        Half shots
Lamp Black                37Thalo Green                22            1Thalo Blue                   30            1White             1 Oz      8
I would appreciate any feedback on these two formulas for my notes.
