  Hi Loris,
  How do you keep the humidity down- I live on the West Coast of Canada- the edge of a rain forest- can't seem to get the humidity below 70-80% even with the fan and heat on. However; if I open the darkroom on a dry day- the humidity will drop- but; we don't get many dry days...
  Any suggestions other than contacting the reluctant electrician who would rather work on million dollar homes than my little darkroom that he installed...
  Thanks,
  Susan

    Sorry, I found this in my Drafts folder :)

     

    In summer we got around 80-90% humidity here (but not always the usual is around 60-70%). Well, maybe you should consider an air conditioner in your workplace. You should use the minimum amnt. of solution that will cover your coating area. I use 1.5ml coating solution per 8x10 print - my brush is a nicely moistened Da Vinci brush (a good synthetic brush! I dip the brush in distilled water then brush on a paper towel to moisten it without diluting the coating solution).

     

    Regards,

    Loris.

    I'm in Cairo, and things dry almost faster than they get wet here! Anyway, do you think i might be using too much solution in my coating? (i use the classical formula)

     

    by the way, istanbul is a wonderful city
