    Can i develope paper with Kodak hc-110

    Im making my first attempt at printing tonight and was wondering if i can use hc-110 as the developer ? The paper im using is Ilford multigrade iv rc deluxe. Also is there a developing chart for paper online ? Do i mix the stopbath and fixer the same way i would when i develope film ?

    Thank you .

    Probably, but it's not ideal. Have a look at the Ilford website there are some excellent PDF files on all aspects of B&W processing.

    Ian, thank you for responding and for the Ilford link. I will get the Ilford paper developer tomorrow. It's 1am here in chicago and i have the urge to make my first print and i only have Kodak hc-110 and Calbe r09 developers, i know it sounds crazy but i cant sleep with all the excitment over me making my first print and im trying to find how i can use the developers i have here. I guess i need photography rehab very bad.

    Jim, some people have used Rodinal as a print developer, so as RO9 is the old Rodinal formula you could give it a try. Don't dilute it too much, maybe 1:10 or 1:15.

    Should the mix be stronger then the mix i use for film ? I use a 1:40 when i develope film. The developer is not Rodinal its Calbe r09, does that make a difference ?

    Calbe RO9 is just the original Rodinal formula which continued in production in East Germany, the West German Agfa Rodinal (now made by A&O) is just a newer improved version.

    Yes as I suggested use it stronger or you dev times will be far too long. Try 1+10 if thats too fast dilute it a bit more.

    Just for the fun of it, check this recipe for Rodinal as a paper developer: http://www.apug.org/forums/forum222/...ht-papers.html

    I have been thinking about trying this out, but I have never gotten around to it.

    After 12 prints i started to improve. I will hit the supply store today to get more paper, would you reccomend Ilford paper ? I was thinking Kodak but the way things are going with Kodak dicontinuing everything i dont want to get used to their paper and they pull it like everything else.

    Thankls for your help .
