    Michael A Smith's Amidol formula works just fine with Kentona. You can get it from his Website at www.michaelandpaula.com

    MAS formula works fine with the bromide paper. Havent tried kentona yet though. His formula works good with just about anything.

    Do you mean his Amidol formula for contact printing on AZO or the one he suggests for enlarging papers?

    Thanks,

    I use his contact printing formula with Kentona with great results. The only thing I change sometimes is the bromide to get a little warmer image tone.

    How do you recommend something you haven't tried?

    Thanks,
    I've developed contact prints on both Azo and Kentona from the same negative in the same batch of MAS contact printing formula Amidol using the Amidol from the recent Chinese bulk purchase. I also developed both papers (again using the same negative) in Amidol from Artcraft, again using Michael Smith's contact printing formula. We used either 4 or 8 ccs bromide (I can't remember which was which) per liter in these Amidol working solutions.

    The results were beautiful for both papers and for both sources of Amidol. The image color of Kentona was superior to my eye. But in any case, the answer to your question is that the contact printing formula works fine for Kentona.

    I would be hesitant to even try the enlarging formula because the benzotriazole might really screw up the beautiful color you get with Kentona.

    I was curious to see if I would be stuck using BZ, it seems like the bromide is good enough.
    Thanks!

    Okay, I am set up with the Chinese amidol (this stuff is ugly!)
    I am having some problems with 'pinking' of the emulsion with kentona if I develop for more than a minute or so. The bromide paper does not seem to be effected.

    I am using rapid fixer.... does the same thing about using regular hypo apply? Anyone else having problems with this?

    Thanks
