    Am I reading this right?

    Cracked open a box of Luminos Flexicon Doubleweight FB and am looking at the data sheet. . .

    Washing
    The fixed prints should be washed in running water for 3-4 minutes.

    ? Did they accidently print the back side of the sheet with the RC paper data or something? I've never read of any fiber base paper stating less then 20 minutes of wash, let alone 3.

    20 minutes with hypo clear, 60 without. So much for paying attention to QA

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    Well. Wash time that quick isn't all the special anyways. I just throw them in when ready, and come back later after makeing more prints to remove them so they'll get 20 minutes+ of wash regardless.

    However, part of why I thought maybe they half printed (actually, looks more photocopied) the datasheet, was that it said typical development times are 60-90 seconds. The Luminos RC that took 90-135 seconds when I used it, and all the other fiber I ever used was only starting to show an image after 60-90 seconds. But alas, I'm finding that 60-90 seconds in the same Ethol LPD 1:4 that I've always been using is giving me fully developed very nice looking images, and that makes me happpy. I like this stuff.
