    I have never had a problem with the chinese amidol...just use an EXTRA tray of water after the fix to let the print mellow out...after the next print is made I transfer to a larger bucket and so forth...my chemical supplier friend gave me a wonderful fine mesh screen that I use to filter the chinese stuff-works like dream but for the life of me I can't figure out the info to post here (sorry bout that!!) where there is a will there is way
    Best, Peter

    First prints on the Fomalux washing now. Tired and going to bed soon but my first thought is - careful with the selenium toner. It seems to change color quite rapidly. More thoughts and scans tomorrow.

    For those that are subscribers, you can find Shawn's pictures in the gallery. It appears he used amidol for sure. The prints look pretty darned nice!

    I certainly agree about the images Thomas. Very well done. Which ones are from the Fomalux and Amidol?

    Sorry, busy today. Will have to post details tonight... Slippery Rock Creek #2 and Exhaust Fan are the Fomalux 111 in amidol (500ml - 1g of KBr - 5 grams amidol - otherwise MAS version).

    Toned in KRST 1:50 for 2 minutes, I usually go around 3 or 4 minutes with other papers.

    especially the color...very reminiscent of Lodima in amidol. Hmmm...ya think? Naa, probably not. The speeds are different.
