    Michael thanks for the blog entry, I'm planning to start VDB in the next month or so and this really helps. To see is so much easier than to read. The prints look great from here.

    Michael,

    What formula are you using for the Vandyke Solution? If you're using Brown Ferric Ammonium Citrate, you can clean up the highlights by adding a couple drops of 5% oxalic acid solution to the coating mixture. It's a subtle change, but definitely worthwhile to get that extra punch from your images.

    Unfortunately the oxalic acid doesn't do anything if you're using the green version of FAC.

    I read about the oxalic acid, but unfortunately I am using the green FAC. I am pretty much done with VDB and am going to move to Ziatype, Pt/Pd and/or carbon next. I want to control contrast now.

    Thanks for the compliments and tips.
