    Kodalith RT starter dilution

    Haven't used this stuff for lith printing in a while, and I can't remember what dilution I started with. Take any advice here to save me some time tonight, I like to start thin and titrate up. 1+1+10? 1+1+15? Will be dipping Forte and Foma papers in it, if that makes a difference. Thanks for the help.

    I've not used it for a while myself, but I remember it has different dilutions depending if it is Kodalith liquid or made from Kodak powder. The liquid is about 1+1+9 or 10 while the stock A & B powder once made up, (which always gave better colours than Kodak liquid), I think was 1+3 A and 1+3 B. I think!
    All the best

    It's the powder. You know what I'll do is play around with some test strips with the lights on. I even have some vintage 2004 RT old brown in the cupboard!

    I take it you are trying to lith? Start with 1(a)+1(b)+(3 to 6) parts water and go from there. Temperature will have an effect on the results as well.

    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.
