    *Amidol, which formula and how much?

    I'm printing with Amidol for the first time on a graded Kentmere paper and would like to know which formula (Michael & Paula) to use, the enlarging one or the one specifically for AZO?

    I'm developing 11x14 in 16x20 trays, I think the 4 liter formula will do or should I use more?

    Thank you,
    Mike

    With enlarging paper, use the enlarging formula. If both contact printing with Azo and enlarging, do the Azo first then at the Replacement in the enlarging formula.

    I suggest starting with Michael Smith's Amidol formula for enlarger paper, and add KBr and/or Benzo. until you get the image tone you desire. I found it was quite to warm for my liking, so I add about 25cc of benzo. solution.

    Mike, As a humanitarian service, I am willing to provide a proper home (here in Thousand Oaks) for your now surplus and discarded 4x5 gear.
