    Oil print and dichromate question?

    Hi folks,

    For any of you oil printers out there, does changing the percent solution of the dichromate change the contrast of the final print in a way similar to the carbon process? Many thanks to any clues given.
    Regards
    Erik

    not doing the carbon process, but yes: change in percent solution will change contrast...

    However, you can controll a lot of the contrast by altering the stiffness of the oil used in the inking...

    Is it the stiffer the ink the more contrast you will have?
