Hot potassium oxalate (at about 100-110F) is my favorite. Warm tones and nice contrast.

Good idea to use citric acid followed by EDTA disodium for clearing. This is my preferred method also.

Subject: platinum developer preference

Hi all,

was wondering which developer is preferred, or do you inveterate pt/pd
printers have several in your darkroom?
ammonium citrate
potassium citrate
sodium citrate
sodium acetate
potassium oxalate
Dick Sullivan's "in a pinch" baking soda/vinegar sodium acetate
    I will be using EDTA di plus citirc acid for clearing (a la Clay
     Being a total novice at pt/pd, I hope I am not asking a beating a dead
horse question like gum stain (Sandy, forgive me) :)
