You can also use your warm finger during development to bring up some parts faster than others, or (I just learned) use ice to slow other areas.
good ideas. I never would have thought of that

Haha I'm over it. Just trying to decide on the 'best,' 'most productive' way of doing paper negatives. All that's left for me is to actually find some free time. It seems like I have plenty of free time to think about stuff, but when it comes time to do it, I get busy with 10^10 other things. Guess I should just stop thinking and just do it
BTW, I'm all up for enjoying any odd things for their weirdness
