    I was looking at the Silver Pixel chems at Freestyle and noticed that there was a seperate bleach and fixer for c41 but only a beach/fix for RA4. I've read why blix isnt a god idea for film. Does the logic apply for paper, too? (My knowlege of chemistry is basic at best, so please excuse me if this is a dumb question) I'm assuming it's fine since bleach and fixer are packaged seperatly for c41 and together as RA4.

    Is it ok to use blix for paper? If not, can I use the bleach and fix seperatly as two seperate baths?

    Is it ok to use c41 bleach and fixer on color paper?

    I tried searching apug for the wisdom I was seeking, but I'm either overlooking it or it's not there (probaly overlooking it, as is my usual fashion).

    Thanks PE. I assumed it was ok, but wanted the opinion of those wiser than me before I made a decision. :smile:

    Now if I only shot and printed enough color to justify buying the chemistry in bulk. I guess I'm storing this kernel of wisdom in my brain until then :smile:
