Just a real quick video of an exposed print being developed. This is what a develop-out print looks like, and how quickly the developer works. The print is almost fully realized in the first twenty seconds of the development cycle, but you still need to give the full two minutes to let the highlights fully develop.
This is what the raw, unexposed double-coated emulsion looks like. I double-coat to get better shadow depth and highlight separation. You can see the two coatings on the lower left. The reason I’m willing to double-coat is that I’m making such small prints that the extra cost isn’t prohibitive.
And the finished print. I think the end result justifies the added labor and expense.

Nice post (and nice the fact im dc too….) 😉
I’ll print soon Pd/Pt and made my first experiments in your same format (9x12cm?)
Congrats on getting in to the medium. It’s a beautiful process, and the 6×12 cm format makes for jewel-like prints.
Sorry for the typo… I meant 6×12 cm….
