Dear Cepwin.

ALWAYS make a test strip: I printed up to 1,500 prints a week commercially in my youth, hand processed....every time I thought 'don't need a test strip for this neg, just like the last neg' I usually had to tear the print up and start again...with a test strip.....false economy.

Please PM me your address and I will send you the ILFORD Multigrade printing manual, it will help.
