Dear All,

Iím going to venture into my first spot of colour printing this evening, using Kodak Ektacolour chemicals in a Paterson thermo drum. I seem to have everything straight in my mind apart from the issue of a stopbath, and I wonder if anyone could advise me about whether this is a necessary step in the process? If so, is a B&W stop bath adequate, or do I need to get hold of something else?

Many thanks in advance for any help on this one.
