Here's another print flattening issue: I use blotters sandwiched between to pieces of particle bd.....gets them nice and flat, but I find blotter fibers sicking to some parts of the print. When dry you can rub them off with an eraser but the emulsion surface is mat in those spots rather than glossy.
How can I fix this? I suspect the problem is I don't use a hardener in the fix for retouching and toning purposes. I use a kodafix first bath and a second bath of formulary TF4.
