DTR on PP400 with EFKE 25
Even so, the thicker reagent portions are still plenty sharp. That same margin on the corresponding negative also showed a good density, perhaps a little too high, but good enough for this experiment.
Below that is a negative produced by a spread on some Kodak premium glossy inkjet paper, which fell apart and produced a texture that you can see if you zoom in. You can also see some very good spots where the reagent spread is near the "right" thickness.
Look at how sharp this stuff is!
Thanks to 20X24 for supplying some receiver material for this experiment. There is no doubt that the PP400 receiver surface could be used for New55, if the stock it was on could be made thinner. Right now it is very appropriately thick, just right for a 20X24 print, but twice as thick as what we'd want for 4x5.
