    When doing this, should I load the paper in the dark before hand? I am definitely going to attempt this today...

    And I have some left over sheet film with no more 4x5 camera. Would this work? :]

    I often wondered why I get color in my Lumen prints - see:

    I also didn't know you should tone them before fixing. When I tried to tone fixed Lumen prints all the color dissapeared! Guess I try it the other way. Sure is interesting how these things work.

    Moma don't take my Kodachrome away!
    Oops, Kodak just did!
    For all practical purposes, they've taken Kodak away.

    I'm attempting this with three materials in pinhole can cameras. One fogged sheet of 4X5 B&W sheet film I was using for test strips. A piece of cut up glossy Color RA4 Paper (ew, glossy! two boxes left I will never use...). And The norm matte ilford fiber paper!

    Find out what happens by the end of the day!

Turned on the light with the print still in what I thought was fixer and saw a brilliant blue print turn black before my eyes. Haven't tried repeating the mistake,must be something in the hypo clear that gave the print a very blue color.

    Somehow I missed this. Thanks !

    How does the size of the silver have to do with the color? Do you remember what website/book you read it in? I'm curious to read it.

    A very wild guess but maybe the size is linked to the wavelength of light it will reflect/refract.
