    Anybody used this stuff to fix negatives?

  2. Hi Mike,

    Yes I have. First, I enlarged the negatives to 5x7 so I would have
    some working room. I suppose others with a steadier hand could work
    with smaller negatives, but I cannot. I made up a stock solution (the
    % of which I can get when I go home this evening). From that I made up
    diilutions of 1:2, 1:3, 1:4, 1:5 and 1:10. The latter was mostly for
    learning purposes. Using a very fine brush, I think it was a 00 or 0000
    brush, I would put small amounts of the weaker dilutions on the areas to
    be altered. As it dried and I was able to determine the degree of
    darkening, I would add more as needed. It can be removed with a wet
    tissue, but be careful. In any case, make a copy negative before

    How do you mean, "fix" ? I've used if for selective dodging of the
    image and it works well. Nice way to add a highlight to a portrait.
