Since this is not the cheapest of processes I am doing a lot of reading before jumping in. It looks like I have all my bases covered, and I want to make my first print soon In my reading I noticed that people say solarization can be a problem with pure Pd. But, none say how to avoid it. Is this something that just happens? What causes solarization? Is there a way to avoid it? I have never seen solarization, what does it look like? RIcheson Question SOmeone here a while ago said when you use the risheson 9010 you use it wet, and only give it a couple hard shakes before use. Is this true, or should it only be slightly damp, as Arentze says in his first book when talking about brush (which does not in anyway mention the richeson) coating? Edit: I should have said I have seen solarization in regular BW prints but not in any other process. Is it the same effect?
