    You mean to tell me you guys don't make perfect negatives every time for alt. process printing? Gasp!!!!! I don't know what to think now....you mean.........you really mean I can dodge and burn under them UV lights? (not kidding there, had never really thought about dodge and burn with UV, at least with the light box I use - home built 12 blb bulbs) Now to find time and go back to some negatives and give it a try...cool

    Mix up some crocein scarlet and dilute it with water. It is a red, removable dye that can be painted on areas of the negative you want to lighten. There was an article in photo techniques a few years ago by David Kachel on this technique. I have used it occasionally, but I use the crocein scarlet more often to spot out tiny holes or scratches that would print black. It is handy stuff. One small bottle should last approximately 7 lifetimes.

    Clay has it but I use it a little bit differently, I found a set of color print retouching colors for color prints, I swab a q tip on it and paint the back of the negative. If I mess up I put the negative in water and it goes away...I usually use green, red or orange, depending on how much "dodging" I want to do...

    Perfect! I've just been flicking the black spots with an exacto knife and then rebuilding to the correct density while spotting but this would be a LOT less work. Where can I get this magical elixir?

    B&H carries crocein scarlet. $22.50 for 1 oz. Just pull up the B&H main page and type in scarlet in the search box. It is listed as "in stock".

    The albumen test was not good, I needed to work with it and in the end I think the improvement was not going to be worth the hassle. There is nothing like having a correctly expose negative and print to give a pt/pd brilliance and depth. So I am sticking with what I have been doing....

    I have never dodged/burned for alt process. I hope to learn how/see it done in Kerik's workshop. Otherwise, I rely on the decent negative approach.
