Subject: Re: solarizing lith film

You need to use a continuous tone developer. It's quite possible; I used to
make copy transparencies on Kodalith 2556 and IIRC used dilute print dev. Of
course, printing from negs, you'll then have solarised positives which
you'll need to contact print again to get a neg for printing. That's why you
might want to try solarising prints, copying them, then printing from the
new neg. To get a solarised neg direct you need to print on direct positive
film. Or you could reversal process the lith film. Good luck, and well done
for helping. keep wet photography alive
