    Sodium Chloroplatinate Prints, oops!

    I was getting ready to print last night and didn't look at the bottles I grabbed. Well, the ones I did grab were the Ferric and a bottle of 20% Sodium Chloroplatinate solution. I immediately recognized a problem when I developed the image--looked like a washed out grainy lith print. Pretty neat effect, but way too expensive for me! I'm just glad I was doing a small print (4x5) and only used 5 drops

    25mL Palladium: $62.50
    10mL 20% Sodium Chloroplatinate: $45

    Ever had any weird effects from using the wrong chemical?
    Let's see what I've got in the magic trash can for Mateo!

    Not me. I can not remember every making a mistake in mixing chemicals in my photograpic work where the effect did not turn out 100% the way I wanted.

    But just for the record, the Sodium Chloroplatinate is the the so-called Na2 solution tht many people are using these days as the contrast control agent with palladium printing, using sodium chloropalladite. Directions on Dick Arentz' web site if interested.
