Do you think lc29 is a suitable developer for this process or possibly rodinal?

Any other advice would be much appreciated. I am currently purchasing some dichromate and possibly try out some slower films.
I would only use high-contrast developer such as paper developer. Also Kodak D-19 is excellent. I've had very good results using Tetenal Eukobrom for instance. I think any paper developer can do.
Negative developers are not convenient in that you have to tweak them in order to obtain a decent contrast.
You sure can do it, for instance adding some sodium carbonate or some sodium hydroxide.
With paper developer you eliminate one possible variable (hopefully choose and use the same developer in your tests).
