    You can use either or both, whichever one or combination gives good spreading on the plate. It differs with emulsion and plate cleanliness (cleaner used I suspect) and also with the hardener used. Mark uses Everclear and Chrome Alum hardener, I use Glyoxal and Photo Flo 200, but then I preharden during processing with Chrome Alum.

    Let me get this right, you are saying that either one may be put into the emulsion, then poured?

    Either one or BOTH of them may be used as long as you get the desired effect. So, you can add Everclear (Ethanol) or Photo Flo 200 or both of them to your emulsion just before you coat.

    Can the liquid emultion be applied under a red light or dose it have to be in the complete darkness? Thanks for all you help. Your images are awesome.

    Red or dark orange are both in my studio. One is enough. It does not need to be totally dark. Instructions for Black Magic say to make a fog test; expose a plate to your safe light in 30 min incriments or something like that and then develop and see if you got any fog.
