What a Fantastic method 
Sorry I also missed the talks this month
I have played with all sorts of methods over the years including dry film of late 

Although commercial PCB’s are quite affordable now 
It is very satisfying to be able to knock up a prototype from idea to board in a weekend 
I’m definitely going to try the method you describe

What is the source of the photo resist ??
I had a quick google "PER-20” but nothing popped up
