What are the chemicals needed and the process for doing vandyke Brown processing?

I have used this one. The Photographers Formulary should have kits already packaged.
1 Oz Distilled water 2.5 gm Ferric Ammonium Citrate 0.4 gm Oxalic Acid
mix well then add:
1 gm Silver Nitrate
Filter and let stand overnight.
Develop in 1 tsp Sodium Sulfite in 1 quart of water for 5 minutes
Fix in 1 tbsp Hypo in 1 quart of water.
I believe there are some cautions on oxalic acid crystals and silver nitrate. Check with a chemical supply house to make sure.
