Am trying to get the hang of salt printing but have run into a couple of road blocks. Most of my attemps so far have resulted in huge patches that print mauve instead of deep red/brown. I thought it was my coating technique with the salt solution so I switched to immersing the paper in the salt/gelatin. I ave used both brush and rod. Looks like a good even coat with about 1ml of sensitizer for a 5X7 print.
Am I using too little sensitizer? Or is the paper not dry enough when I go to print. I read in "Coming into focus" that paper not completely dry will do this. There is an image on the entire sensitized surface with great detail so I feel I am getting it coated evenly. Do I need to double coat?
