    I know people have developed in all sorts of odd things, but has anyone ever souped in actual soup?

    I doubt it, but YOU could be the FIRST to do so. Post your results and findings HERE. Are you using Heinz or Campbells? D-76 is far more predictable.:D

    I hear Campbells Cream of Mushroom soup works really well.

    May be, but Heinz Oxtail gives a stronger stain.:wink:

    I prefer Chicken with Stars. A good chicken soup can cure most common things that plague me. HA!

    Hmmm, raise the acid level a little...and add a little red staining...how about Campbell's Tomato Soup? It's kinda' thick like HC 110. :wink:

    After drinking too much fermented 'soup' I am prone to get the Dektol confused with the Dettol. No image to speak of but perfectly germ-free negs.

    They say that English beer taste like cold soup, it's a German (or was it a Dutchman) who told me so, anyway, I will stick with my beloved (Belgian) Trappist ale (*)...

    (*) the same colour like Ole's Paxtral after a few weeks...

    It will need to be alkaline, not acid.

    Try George Carlin's "Cream of Botulism". It works wonders, but only in stand dev.

    IIRC, salt is a silver solvent. Many/most soups are oversalted and therefore you may get no image???

    Try it and let us know.

    Campbells Royal Game soup. Lousy for film but great with a hunk of crusty bread.

    Not to hijack this thread, but don't mix Chicken Gumbo with OJ. Accidentally did that in high school and where it spilled it took the brown out of those really classy cafeteria tables; you know the kind, the ones that look like fake wood grain.
