Hi, I start ilfochrome a year ago (which only represent 2 Kits of P3.2) and went through all types of troubles: Bath contaminating, bath to cold, paper out of date, magenta cast and finally lack of contrast and saturation using a new kit of chemistry with a new box of paper (Pearl out of date since 2005 but kept in fridge). For this last problem I follow the advice of Dave travis about the subject (Here and increase the proportion of H2O in Developer and Bleach as well as I push up the time in the bleach. Finally I came up with an almost descent print... But now that I am in the good tracks I was wondering two thinks: -Does contrast mask enhance color saturation? -Does the method "to bleach, but not fix a print, then redevelop, bleach, redevelop and bleach until you achieve the color saturation / contrast - that you want", is an Ilfochrome method? (By the way, to control this last method one will have to look the print in daylight, is that a problem?) Thanks in advance, Julien.
