Used to be able to do it easily with Tri X and sodium carbonate--it would
melt the emulsion like mucous. Tray of water, lukewarm to hot, dissolve chem
in the water first and then place neg in and watch like a hawk. Now with
the new hardening they've been doing to films to make them people-proof, I
actually had a student have to use sodium hydroxide to get the same effect,
but it worked wonderfully. With gloves, of course. TMax 100 is about bullet
proof tho and I wouldn't try it as a first attempt.
