    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.

    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.
