Thanks Rudeofus. I specifically mentioned Athiril, because in the post I linked, he indicated he got good results splitting. I do note too that someone further along said he got a base that wasn't as orange as he would like. This seems to me a case of not letting it go to completion. I've gotten results with the plain old blix of it being on the brown side, and have been able to live with the result. I suspect though that if blixed or bleach/fixed longer, the brown might well become a better orange.

Are you suggesting that the bleach won't work at all, or won't work as quickly? PE indicated that it was possible the fix was an accelerant, but there's a difference between it working faster and not working at all...
