Color peelapart experiments demonstrate proof-of-principle
Today we are experimenting with an all-new negative, reagent and receiver material that can likely be obtained in fresh production quantities. The results show reasonably good Dmin and Dmax, a good grayscale, fairly correct colors and a color balance within striking distance of a real product.
Not visible here is a load of stuck-on reagent and some mottling caused by our inconsistent gap. These both have to be fixed and although these results are promising we have no data on fading, pH neutralization, and changes due to age, humidity or time, which we will need.
A proposed Kickstarter is in the works but not quite ready. The success of a 4x5 color effort would presumably lead to the roll goods needed for pack films, later, and possibly other peelapart products.
