Dan, One other issue to address is humidity. Platinum LIKES IT DRY! Try
coating, and drying but no added humidity, especially true if your friend
lives in a humid part of the country. Your weak blacks (same exposure as
palladium?) would not hold true for humid platinum; it would require a
longer exposure.
