Glad you liked it. I will be printing it again as I would like to see if I could bring out some more details in the sunlit pavers. Will take some fancy dodging I think

The print dryed perfectly. Here's the next victim for the rack...

I put the fiber based prints for a few hours under some books. It works

Jean-bob, welcome to the darkroom print thread.
It's neat to see the sprocket hole on the print above.
Feel free to add which developer and paper on these prints.

Thanks Will,

I used my last sheets and bits of old Fomatone MG Classic Warmtone (although I discovered I still have some 18x24 sheets in my darkroom), in Moersch EasyLith. I tried the new Fomatone, but didn't like the effect (and it takes a lot more time to develop).

I also found some sheets of old Kentmere 18x24 Finegrain warmtone, that was my second choice for lith printing, but I guess that after that there will be no more lith printing, unless someone comes up with a new lithable paper.

Thank you !

These are all MGIV RC mat paper with Ilford multigrade develloper. I used the grade 3.5 filter on this particular one.

I have yet to try FB paper though...

Thomas, there is always 2nd pass lith printing. It does not work with every paper, but some give really nice results.

Same developper/paper combo. This is from the first (and only) 120 roll I developed myself and I messed it up... The film wasn't properly loaded on the reel and most of the right hand side of the film is underdeveloped... Hence the cropping !

I've never printed in the darkroom before, but last week picked up a relatively cheap LPL enlarger and set up the bathroom to give it a try. This frame was the first exposure

Sandra, I've read about this technique but so far I've always do straight (one pass) lith-print.

Would you expand on it more and maybe show us some examples? Which paper have you tried, which developers?

Joel, I love it when newcomers to the darkroom post here.
Hope to see your seconds, thirds, fourths...

Just a suggestion, if you make this a square print with the top half, it'd be a super good one. I love the tilt-ish horizon

Thanks guys, appreciate it. I struggled with trying to black out the windows for a good hour so the printing was somewhat rushed due to frustration. But that's what you get for being impatient!

I'm going to buy some materials to make proper covers/seals for the window and door and I'll be back in there soon enough.

It was originally square but I see what you mean and I'll try next time I'm in the darkroom. Thanks !

That's where most of my prints end, in my friends' hands. It's a nice gift.

Hi Will,

Please excuse my late answer, I just did not see your question before

If you wish to do a 2nd pass lith, you would start with exposing the paper ca. 50 % more than a normal print would require, as the process tends to lighten your print and reduce the contrast somewhat. Then you develop it normally in your standard developer, stop, fix, wash well.

Then you can do the 2nd pass lith. I work under red darkroom safelight during the whole procedure, which is:

- Bleach the paper in copper bleach. Ca. 30-40 seconds.
- Wash 10 minutes minimum, in the meantime:
- Prepare the lith bath; here you can experiment a little. Start with
3 ml Part A, 3 ml Part B, 500 ml water (warm water, around 35-40 Celsius)

- Put the print in a tray with warm water (ca. 40 Celsius/104 Fahrenheit), to warm it up, then
- Put the print in the warm lith developer (ca. 40 Celsius/104 Fahrenheit) to redevelop. Experiment with the correct moment to snatch the print
- Stop and fix as usual
- The print will lighten somewhat when in the fix; it will get darker again when dry.
- Wash as usual

You can stop here or tone the print in Se, Au, sepia or whatever.

If you do not like the result, you can repeat the process (edit: before toning, of course), but I found that the contrast suffers and the gelatine will swell even more. I will have to experiment further with this.

I tried 2nd pass lith with Fomabrom Variant 111 and Adox Variotone. You can find examples at my ipernity account. I don't know how to include the images here (this was easier with flickr), but here is a link to

Fomabrom Variant 111: http://www.ipernity.com/doc/sandra-wittmann/17201283

and this one is Variotone: http://www.ipernity.com/doc/sandra-wittmann/17201415

Moersch Easy Lith gives other colors than Rollei Superlith. Both are beautiful.

You may want to read Wolfgang Moersch's information here:

http://www.ipernity.com/blog/wolfgang.moersch/697765

More examples on his website:

http://www.moersch-photochemie.de/co...cklung/lang:en

And you may also wish to subscribe to Tim Rudman's newsletter:

http://www.timrudman.com/mailing_list

His 2nd pass lith prints are here:

http://www.timrudman.com/printing-pr...nd-pass-lith/1

I hope that I was able to answer your question a little bit. Experiment and have fun!!

Best regards,

Sandra

Thank you for taking the time to educate us with this fascinating way to print.

Had I the power to make your post a Sticky, I would.
