    B&W Paper Reversal Prints, Examples?

    Hi all,

    I'm wondering if anyone has any examples or links to examples showing prints made on reversal processed B&W paper (enlarging paper). I've seen several references to work done using this process but I can't seem to find any examples and I'd be interested in seeing some.

    The process has been discussed at length numerous times in this forum so no point in going over it again here. If curious, just use the search feature. Also, people tend to get off track and end up talking about contact printing paper negatives. Thats not what we're talking about here so lets stay on point.

    I'm looking specifically for examples of prints made by reversal processing B&W paper. Prints can be made from either printing slides or from paper exposed in camera and then reversal processed to produce a positive print.

    Hopefully someone has some examples! Thanks!

    Hi Francesco,

    I have done exactly this. I use my old film reversal chemistry in trays. The paper is Ilford MGIV Deluxe Glossy. Development temp 20°C under normal safelight conditions. 90 seconds in first developer, and 60 seconds for all other baths. I turn the lights on in the darkroom for the second exposure, and give it 90sec before I run throught the second developer.

    Developer - Dektol 1:1 (nothing added)
    Bleach - 9.5g potassium dichromate, 12ml 98% sulfuric acid plus water to make a litre
    Clearing bath - 100g sodium sulfite plus water to make a litre
    Fixer - what ever I had lying about.

    Orwo UN54 35mm reversal processed
    60 sec, 0Y130M f4.5. Lacking contrast

    a few of the 16mm frames enlarged. I did not sandwich these frames to the paper so not as sharp as they could be.

    Hope this is of some use to you.
