[pure-silver] Re: How do I increase local contrast in my shadows when printing?

Len, Are you trying to project it as a sandwich or are you using it at the
paper plane/easel? Printed with what printer? Rip? 

The frosted or white material from Pictorico not the clear is what you want
to try first. Although, I have used a clear material from Photo Warehouse
with the Cone inks, output with an Epson 7000, and running with Image Print
6.0. I use that set up for making enlarged negs for platinum printing. I
also use it occasionally to make mask, but thank goodness, only a few time. 
 
Another tool that is very handy to make black, is small flash light with an
attachment available at auto parts stores. I also use it as a portable safe
light by inserting a small piece of rubylith and making the light red. Works
great for finding misplaced items in the dark, as long as it is not the
misplaced item : )
