    I'm probably guilty of a little over washing, so I've always wondered, what signs does an under washed print give up?

    Hi Steve,

    As my prints are alternative process (not wanting to give too much away to everyone), if there is staining of the paper then I did not wash properly. This Alternative stuff really needs a good wash to get the salts out of the paper.

    I should be giving long washes in running water, but this hurts knowing I only have rain water in the darkroom and it is a finite resource. So for washing I have a tank which I circulate water about in it, and change it when I think it should be. Maybe not often enough.

    When I started doing pictures it was on the floor in my Dad's garage, and the trays were 16mm film spool containers. Washing was in Mum's mop bucket. I never changed the washing water during these session. I guess I have only just progressed a little from my origins when it comes to washing prints.
    Cheers - Andy C

    Well, it doesn't matter how small, or few the steps, as long as we are always moving forward in one way or another Thanks for the clarification

    This is taking a long time. I'm happy to offer up extra prints to make up for the slackers.

    I was wondering if the prints will be sent out before the middle of January. I'm going to be moving to Canberra on the 17th. If they're not ready, I'll have to give you a new address. Would you please let me know Tim
    thanks
    Mike
