THE POLYMER PROCESS

development

1. The original negative is placed in the enlarger with the emulsion side down An easel is used to hold the image positive film flat and in the focal plane of the projected image.

2. The image positive film is exposed and developed in a traditional paper developer; then taken to spottable and fix. After fixing the film is washed for 5 minutes. It is then taken to a Kodak-fotoflo solution and dried.

Several types of continuous-tone films can be used successfully. We have been using e.g. Bergger, Agfa Gevarex and Arista films. For very soft images we recommend using litofilms developed in a very diluted developer, e.g. Neutol 1:50.
