    Indeed! But now I'm hell bent on doing it with this negative... Then I might retake the shot

    It's that silly tendency of people in a technical field to use the same word for three different things. (Think of trapping in printing industry)...

    So instead of 'flashing' just a little light over the whole sheet to keep detail in highlights... This meaning of 'flashing' is more like blasting the paper with light to make it pure black where you want to wipe out stuff (like the lamp).

    Gotcha! Makes sense.. Well, flashing worked a treat and I'm also glad I decided to use my easel as I have a rather dashing border too

    Thank you so much to everyone for your speedy responses you saved a lot of stress (and paper)!

    I always like to test as many options as possible and settle for the easiest option that works for the image I'm working on. I speak more digitally here as it's where my experience lies. As far as analog goes, I will apply the same principles

    Haha it's a brilliant little contraption that cost me £1 in the pound shop (a saving of £29 on a Paterson rack dryer!)
