Jorge, That was my first thought. It was the metal salts. That's when I went back and reheated the palladium, ferris oxalate and the platinum. I even filtered the palladium and ferric oxalate as I said with whatman filter paper, to no avail. I'm printing for my first show which needs to be framed in the next week so I was In a state of panic and anger because for the life of me I couldn't figure out what was wrong. Well now I need to run to walmart and pick up a hair dryer the old one was splattered against the darkroom wall. Thanks again guys, Robert
