unfortunately the only way to keep the image
is through a hybrid mode ...
since they disappear for the most part
even with a super dilute super alkali hypo solution.
i haven't yet had enough money to use
gold toner as was suggested ...
so until then i am kind of stuck between
as analog as it gets, and some sort of
other worldly device for recapturing the captured image

while the 11x14 is off to that giant garage sale in the sky ...
i am still making custom sizes ( like the 11x14 ) and the 5x7 is still available
