Be sure to thoroughly wash your treated papers before using. I washed the paper for about 15 minutes (rising stonehenge) and got an ugly, grainy blob of an image. I let the paper wash for an hour and the print was much much better. If I were to go the SA route, I will have to adjust my digi negs profile.
Right. The initial post contains the washing procedure too. 20-25 mins washing is quite adequate with SA method.
I am curious which acid you are using for removing buffer.
