Many formulas are in use not so much because of their wonderfulness in image making but because of their ability to stay clear and clean not going brown or beige in a glass bottle after a few weeks. People tend to not not like their developers going dark on them makes then think they'll get funny results form them which tends to be true but not always if you get into the use of more esoteric non Metal hydroquinone formulas. The adding of Glycin to a formula I'm not sure how well it would help it stay clear maybe it does. My experience has not been in keeping a chemical mixed like that in a thing. But mixing up right before use. I'd recommend my way. But then I'm me. But then I tend to get my techniques from people who know what they're doing for the mostly part. Glycin is pricy but long acting so not non economical well worth it especially if your doing a run. And as a higher priced spread is more economical than Amidol. If I'm running multiple sheets at a time leafing through them in a larger tray I'm going to run them more for a couple of minutes more like five for uniformity. In those cases I'll put some Glycin in the tray and call it 130. And get a nicer result for my effort. Cleaning working maybe. I think I got this from how Ansel would print some of his portfolios. I'm a chemist guy in the darkroom sense. A real chemist guy I'm sure would fine my doings laughable. As I had an assistant once or was. Be he found me doings bearable. mark@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Mark William Rabiner > From: Eric Maquiling <emaquiling@xxxxxxxxx> > Reply-To: "hasselblad@xxxxxxxxxxxxx" <hasselblad@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> > Date: Mon, 25 Aug 2008 11:04:13 -0700 > To: "hasselblad@xxxxxxxxxxxxx" <hasselblad@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> > Subject: [HUG ] Re: HI TO ALL > > On Mon, Aug 25, 2008 at 01:54:13PM -0400, Mark Rabiner wrote: >> I found more convenient than mixing up the 130 is just adding a teaspoon of >> Glycin to my Dektol. >> When I got sick of measuring out 11gs of Glycin. >> >> The results you get you'd never tell from the 130 the formulas are pretty >> similar. > > Wow! this is interesting. > Does it last long though?
