I wanna know how to make that defective negative :-) Looks like
emulsion has a bit cracking coarser than typical reticulation but not

My friend who does nothing but lith printing often dislikes pinky
highlights of Fortezo and he tones in KRST and then in gold for split
effect. Fortezo in lith printing gives somewhat lower Dmax but
selenium helps a bit as well. Fortezo is known to split tone very
well with KRST and gold.

Fortezo is a beautiful paper but one serious problem is that it's such
a trouble to dry it flat. Once you deal with Fortezo, Agfa MCC is
almost like an RC paper.

It looks lithy enough, but if you want more lithy effect, try to slow
agitation a bit (wait for a few more moments between rocking the tray).
