    If I double coat the second coating is brushed on as soon as the first coat is dry to the touch. I apply the second coat, aim a fan on it for a minute while the print is flat, then hang to dry with air directed from the fan. I always begin to print at 15 minutes from the end of the second coat, and keep the RH in the work room at 55% to 65%.

    Clearing prints that have been double coated can be more difficult than single coated ones. It helps if you hit the print with a blast of warm air from a hair dryer as soon as the first and second coating go on the print. This will keep the emulsion on the surface of the paper.

    My comments here apply to both kallitype and palladium since except for certain steeps the chemistry and development procedures are identical.

    Thanks everyone for the clarifications, very helpful. Lots of new stuff to try out.

    Jim, yeah, I made a 5x12 last year, what a great format! I really like the size for contact prints.
