UNLESS you are overexposing in the 2nd exposure to the point that you're gettin solarization/partial reversal or total reversal happening...that may be the case and if it's controllable, then this may be worthwhile...
yeah, not sure if you saw my earlier posts but this is exactly it. the second exposure that i'm doing is not a fogging exposure in a chemical reversing process, but a solarizing exposure that i'm trying to control. the higher EI rating for the paper is just something that i'm estimating based on my test results as a more suitable latent image for my solarized direct reversal process (it's all done in one development, the paper never leaves the soup).
