I'm starting a project where I plan/hope to print exclusively in albumen. I've done several prints before, and I've made enlarged negatives (Lith film and LC-1 developer). I'd like to use full size (5x7) negatives for the images this time.
I know I'll need to do a good bit of experimenting to get really good negatives, but my question is:
I know the time, with my developing particulars, needed to develop for a good silver gelatin negative. Using the same film, developer, agitation, etc, what would experience show to be a good starting point for developing the film for albumen printing?
The films I have to use are FP4+ or Ektapan (I have a box of 100, expired several years ago). The developers I normally use are Rodinal or Pyrocat HD. I'd happily mix up D76 or switch films if necessary, if it had a large advantage.
