    You may be right about the fixer. I've inked up my last matrix so I'll have to print more before I can try using straight hypo. Right now though, I'm headed out on a 3 day hiking trip to reset myself.

    Hopefully I'll have some results to post in a week or two.

    I got really anxious to try the ink before my hypo crystals came in and I can tell you it did not work well. There was a world of difference after I started using the hypo crystals. I also found that Ilford warm tone semi-matt finish works well.

    Thanks for the info Gay, that's really interesting. I guess it pays to listen to others advice sometimes. Looks like I'll be ordering some hypo today. I'll give it a shot and post my results.

    I'm definitely happy to hear you've had succss with this paper, Gay. Still scrounging about for choices to replace Agfa! Thanks!

    Bromoil Streaking

    Travis - I'm just ducking in and have been really busy lately moving to a new down-sized house. It sounds like you have come up with the solution - stiffer ink! That should do it.

    I only use hypo crystals and avoid rapid fix for bromoil.

    Good luck and cheers!

    I don't think I can give much of a review of the paper. Pretty much everything I'm churning out right now is 1 step above crap. Give me some time and I might be able to.

    I think that switching to hypo crystals rather than rapid fix combined with stiffer ink will do the trick. I'll be going into the darkroom a lot over the next week so I plan on coming out of there with at least 10 bromoil candidates. I'll post my results if I can make a few good ones. Thanks for the inspiration Gene!
