    Hi,

    has anybody tried to develop FOMA liquid emulsion (on a glass plate) or any other liquid emulsion in Pyrocat-HD ?

    Hi Filmwilli and mircr.zappon,

    Always great to see new posters here!

    If you don't get an answer within a couple of days, it's likely that no one knows the answer yet (at least who comes here.) It would be wonderful if one or both of you tried and reported back on your results. Experimentation is the way that people who know the answers got the answers. Sharing the results is the way a knowledge base grows. Looking forward to more posts from you both!

    Haven't tried it, but why would it be different than developing in any other developer? I soup Fomapan in PMK Pyro exclusively, I use it to harden the emulsion which is somewhat soft to begin with(factory admission), so I think liquid emulsion would benefit from PCat-HD.
