    you went from coating the paper to developing the paper. how about the negative and an exposure section or do I assume it was already on the paper?? NOT!
    just a little curious

    Hi, Janosch:

    Not familiar with the inks you name. Are these dye inks or pigment inks?

    Thanks....

    Thanks for the link. Do dye inks have concern with interacting with moisture on the paper, if any? I am thinking of converting an old Epson for printing diginegs myself.

    no problem so far i let the inks dry for 20 min or somthing and there is no smearing also my kallitype emulsion dries for 20min and is then relativly dry :smile:
    bigger problem is the foil so far ONLY pictorico works with my epson 1500w and the cape fear ink at 100% at the moment i make a test with fixxon which looks vers promissing ink limit is around 75% fingers crossed :D
