Interesting point. Until now, I always thought my prints were entirely dry when mounted. I did wait at least 24 hours before mounting but a curious thing happened when I opened the press. A small amount of steam came out. Where would that moisture have come from except from the print itself?. That is strange because the print felt and looked completely dry before mounting.

As far as print color, the print was not split toned. the color change was even across the print and readily apparent.
