I've got a negative film that came out of the tank with some tiny white spots. I believe the spots have been caused by the developing bath that had formed some crystal. I would like to print some frame anyway and I was thinking about retouching the neg. Does anyone has got ideas on how to do it? Will the usual black ink work?

Ciao e grazie,

Marcello

Yes, Spotone can be used on a neg the way it is used on a print. Use a light table and stand magnifier or magnifying goggles to view the neg. This will be very tricky with 35mm. You may want to enlarge the neg.

Thank you all for the suggestions. I'll make some test. For the moment my goal is to obtain a print that will be easy to spot (a white spot on a print is easyer to remove than a black one).
