IME, I did get a soft image with just 6 drps FAO (40%) + 4 H2O as
sensitizer. This was slightly better w the addition of 1 drop of Na2
(5%). The result was very much improved w the addition of 1 drop of 5%
Pt or Pd (i.e. 6 drops of FAO + 3 water + 1 Pd or Pt). This volume was
sufficient for coating a 4x5" trial print. You might be able to get by
with Au instead of Pt,Pd. Do let us know if it works.

Cheers, Rajul
