RE: Bottem of the Van Dyke Barrel

I did not find too much difference between year old VDB solution and totally
fresh, exposed side by side.  I did find a color difference, though, the new
looked warmer and less grey.

FWIW, my experience parallels Chris's. That is, older VDB solution tends to
produce grey-er prints. For me, when I start seeing grey I just dump the
solution and fix some fresh. 

> BTW if doing VDB you have to buy the Weston paper...it is beautiful on it.

And yes VDB does look great on the Weston Diploma Parchment. An excellent
inexpensive paper.
