It's been awhile, but after being concerned about storing a gallon of pool acid, ended up just buying a bottle of Ferric Chloride and using that with a hot plate. Takes longer and not as exciting as the pool acid/peroxide but got the job done. I also understand it lasts a very long time in storage. Also, had the layout laser copied onto slick paper at the office store since didn't own a laser copier. Used my old laminating machine.
Given I only made a few boards, and haven't made any in about a year, am glad didn't buy a laser printer or a gallon of acid. My bottle of Ferric Chloride is about 3/4 full and still have a stack of PCB laminate.
I think if you plan to make a lot of circuit boards or are an active experimenter, follow Rob's instructions in links he provides.
Just my 2 cents.
