    Hello,

    I have for a while made bromoil on liquide emulsion with some success.

    I wanted to try to make som bromoil on ordinary foto paper and tried Fomabrom Variant IV 123.
    Have seen a lot of examples made on that paper.

    Have tried to make pictures several times, but the picture become way to gray.
    Have tried different contrast, different exposing and different soaking time.

    I used this bleach: 7 g copper sulphate, 7 g potassium bromide and 3 g potassium dichromate. 1000 ml water.

    Any suggestion are mostly welcome :smile:
