    Thanks everyone for all the great tips and advice. Definitely gives me some new techniques to try. I do ok with spotting but have felt I could improve.

    My technique is similar to what's been mentioned here. My saucer of dry spotone has lasted about a year, now. I keep it in a Tupperware container, when not in use, and dust it with a tissue before using. The one difference is, I use photo-flo, instead of water. Not sure where I picked up this tidbit (maybe Vestal?), but it works nicely.

    Yes they are good. You can also get sets of colours if you want to colour tint Photographs.

    I've always used a similar technique, except I use my thumbnail as a pallette and saliva to wet it. Both of which were always exactly in the correct position. The spotting medium didn't seem to be poisonous.
    I haven't done any wet printing for many years, photoshop makes it too easy. But, and a big but, I have recently acquired a DeVere enlarger and will be setting up a darkroom in my new house (wherever it will be) and will recommence making proper prints within the next year.
