    using fomadon lqn paper developer with film.

    i have been give some of this paper developer and was wondering if anyone has got interesting results from using it with various films..
    i have actually added a splash of this stuff to a caffenol blend,but it was a tiny amount.so not sure if it did anything.
    i am aware that people have used dektol with some good results.
    also would paper developers heavily diluted be good for high contrast fils.
    cheers

    Fomadon LQN IS a negative developer, so it will work well, as intended

    Fomatol LQN is the paper developer.

    Ilford PQ Universal and May & Baker (Champion) Suprol are both excellent Universal developers, great with papers and excellent when diluted 1+19 to 1+29 for films, good tonality and fine grain.

    I'd guess it needs diluting to 1+15 or even 1+23, and a development time of around 5-6 minutes at 1+15, but you'd need to experiment. If the cpntrast is too high use 1+23.
