Am having trouble trying to make a Carbon curve , i had a few false starts and decided to start from scratch. Ive settled on a tissue mix and a senitiser solution of 3% which is average and worked out a max black time.
First it printed a limiter negative using the master quad and then determine a limit point and developed and new quad using that. The first image is made using that quad. Once that print was made I measured the 129 steps and ran it through the smoother to make another quad and then reprinted the 129 step wedge and the second image is the result. I seem to have gained a lot of the missing tones which were missing from the first but lost the last 22 steps, or most of them.
Any ideas why, I want to test again using the same paper as these were transferred onto a matt and gloss paper, should cause that much difference but thought I would post here while doing that given the time differences.
