thanks for all your input

... i was thinking of treating the color paper as i would a black and white paper negative and making a contact print from it, not a direct postive ... but after reading the suggestions on PN and here, i might
change my thinking when i gather enough time+energy to do this sort of thing

... were there every dry(in)-dry(out) color print processors ? ( i am thinking of something like an ektamatic ( is that spelled right ? ) or Xray processor that people might use to make rc black ane white prints w/o having to deal with trays of chemicals ) ...
