    Hey ronlamarsh,

    I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work, but if you want high contrast... seems like this would open the door to almost any simple photosensitive liquid... For example silkscreen stencil emulsion... hmm maybe you should try your hand at serigraphy...

    Hi,

    Newer tried it, but I have thought of trying it.
    I have bleached and toned it in theo with success. As Bill writes, I think it should work.
    Let us know how it goes.

    Stine - my girlfriend - has tried and tried - it doesn't work with lith!!

    at least the FOMa emulsion we use. Suspecting a chemical present in the emulsion that makes the process go way too fast...

    however - in the book Silver Gelatine - there's an example of lith made as a lith re-development image...

    (You make your image the "normal" way - then bleach away the whole think and redevelop it in lith... that way the end result can't be darker than the original...

    we havn't tried it on other brands, so maybe...?

    EDIT: Stine has, however had exceptional results in using Lith developer in combination with a normal soft developer for two bath developing. Amazing how many tones one can get this way! (But that's not lith printing - "just" good darkroom work...,-))
