I know the 'foibles' of this paper have been covered before but I would appreciate any comments on the following.
I bought some of this paper in 7x5 to work at a smaller scale than the 8 x 10 I have used before (OK I admit it I've got a 7x5 print dryer/glazer off ebay and want to play ) and I am using my meograd head for VC instead of my old tungsten bulb/filters which I have used before to print on this paper.
This time I just can't seem to get any 'bite' in the image Ive cranked the colour filters to 85M 5Y as suggested on the datasheet for G4 but still no luck. I've exposed far longer than I normally would (and got a darker print :rolleyes: ) but to no avail.
I have tried toning in selenium but it went even muddier (could this be a reaction with the wash aid which I used - I rinsed really well after use) .
Temeperature is controlled in a rotary processor so that can't be the problem . Could I have mixed dev incorrectly , not unknown, would that have given the problem ?
I really liked this paper when last I used it so comments would be really welcome.
