Works great and makes your darkroom smell good, too. I don't suggest tea staining prior to printing because that caused fogging with some papers I tried.

Kerik,

Thanks for the information, one can never have too many 'trick' to try and tune materials. Where on earth did you find this...or is one of the 'wonder what this would do' lessons..either way, thanks.
