A little redundant on their part.

First of all the HT-2 test does not indicate at archival
levels. BUT no stain does mean very close to archival.

The test is done drop wise. The silver within combines
with any sulfur present in the emulsion. The stain is silver
sulfide. The drop stays in place 3 minutes then is blotted
off. The color must be read within a very few minutes
of turning the lights up. The sulfide is light sensitive.

Any further questions? Dan
Light sensitive.... I am a dope

There I was applying and checking it beside the window. Ok, so I fix and wash the print, and should I let it dry before testing? I had been experimenting on a dry print, and on the borders and image area. The stain intensified over time, confusing me further. Are subdued red light conditions ok for applying the drop?

Thanks Dan.
