    Yup, No-Scratch works, but, as said, it gets messy and there is some specualtion that the turpentine (some folks just use household turp) in the No-Scratch is harmful to the negative. I don't know, but you can also use the oil from your nose (no kidding) to put on the neg to hide a scratch. easier to clean the neg, too.

    That sounds curious. What exactly happened to the neg, and what type of film and what pyro formula was it?

    David,
    Type was Tri-X processed by myself in WD2D+
    I did a post last year and there is a pic of the nega. The liquid went into the emulsion, sank in it.

    I tried some No-Scratch but didn't like the difficulty and mess. I found that good ol' human nose oil worked better and was selling at no-cost from myself. :-)

    Nose Oil

    you can also use the oil from your nose (no kidding) to put on the neg to hide a scratch

    Blimey, I had forgotten all about Nose Oil. We were told about that in college in the early 80s and it semed to work some of the time. One small point though. It is derived from the outside of the nose and not from within!!

    Well, once you've got a bottle of No-Scratch, it seems to last for ever. I think mine must be at least 12 years old. I'll wait another 13 years before I drink it.

    Yes, I forgot to mention oil from the outside. That is very important!
