    Thanks Ole/Robert.

    I figured on no fix. Since I have no commercial fix, would a minute or two in 5% hypo do the trick?

    What do you hope to achieve by doing this? I have never re-developed a neg, what is the reason and what are the results like?

    Most alt process techniques are inherently soft (argyrotype typically a grade 0). Polaroid film cannot be over dev'ed and thus the neg is generally too soft to be suitable. Redev'ing (or indeed just over dev'ng) in pyro increases the density and contrast of the film. The results: I'll let you know.

    5 minutes in plain Hypo and refix after final redev.

    Wash the bleach -completely- from the neg each time you redev as well.

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    Sorry, me again. So I made a mistake: I thought I had some pot bromide, but don't. Can anyone see any problems if I bleach in just pot ferri? Does the pot bromide just inhibit the bleaching action?

    Cheers

    yes, if you have no bromide, you wont re-halogenate the silver and your redev wont work. The bleach will just bleach the image.

    Have to have the bromide.

    Just a quick word of thanks to all who helped. Everything went swimmingly. I redeved 3 negs in the end and they are now much more suitable for argyrotype. Thanks all.
