I need some advice... I currently use dektol and Ilford multigrade mixture for my lambda prints... 6litres of dektol stock and 5 litres of multigrade with 40 litres of water at 70 degree.
I use this for lambda fibre prints and my 21 step wedge calibration is based on this rather strong dilution and a 3 minute 40 second dev time.
I want to switch to my Solaral developer which is a metol, sodium sulfite, sodium carbonate and sodium bromide concotion, listed in the paper by William Jolly.
What I hope to get is a 21 step wedge to match my current mixture.
If I need more speed or more concentration do you have any recomondations?
I cannot run the laser printer without getting a good calibration but I have never tried a non hydroqoninne developer for this . My goal of course is to make solarizations
using the laser printer, which opens a lot of doors for me.
