    Carbon Transfer - Potassium Dichromate

    Continuing in my self funded foray into carbon transfer and I have a question. When doing the matting bath I seem the get a lot of Potassium Dichromate washing into the bath, is this normal or a sign of A/ to much sensitisor - I use 3.5ml for a 5x7 or B/ not working the sensitiser into the tissue correctly.

    Thanks

    Are you tray sensitizing your tissue? I spirit sensitize but do not see sensitizer in the mating bath. I do work under a yellow bug light, which makes it difficult to see if sensitizer is in the water.

    Carbon Transfer - Potassium Dichromate

    No spirt, so that's 1.75 ml PD & 1.75 ml acetone. If not yellow as stop bath but got a yellow tone to the water after the matting bath.
