    I just recently purchased the Amidol Plus Kit (with the Catechol 2nd bath) out of curiosity for what exactly those other "additives" or "finishers" are that come with the kit. Not to mention the catechol second bath. Has anyone tried this kit with Azo and what are your experiences? More importantly, how does this kit work? The translated instructions are a little vague.

    The "Finisher Brown" is probably a potassium bromide solution, the "Finisher Blue" is probably Benzotriazol.

    The first developer (Amidol) is very, very soft-working. Develop until the hihglights are just a little pale. A quick rinse in water, then into the second dreveloper (Catechol).

    I tried it (out of curiosity) without finisher first: The paper went mid-grey immiediately in the second developer. Poured in a clunk of blue, tried again: Very nice result.

    I have not tried it with Azo, but it is a different formulation to the one suggested for that.

    PS: The translated instructions aren't really vague, just badly translated. It all makes sense in German - even the English instructions make sense when translated to German!

    (LOL) Tusen tack Ole. I ordered some Azo and will try a few sheets with it to see how it reacts.
