    Separate brushes for PtPd and Kallitype?

    I am making a first pass at Kallitype this weekend, and realize that I forgot to order a brush. I have a Richeson for PtPd. Can one use the same brush for both processes, washing well in Clearing bath afterwards, or do I need a dedicated brush for Kallitypes?

    Thanks
    Neal

    I use the same brushes for kallitype and pt./pd. Just wash well after use, with a final soaking in distilled water.

    I also use the same tray, and one-tray for all of the steps. I also use brushes with metal ferrules.

    God, hope this is not too offensive to the purist souls.

    I'm with Sandy. One brush, one tray, attention to detail.
