RE: Lighting for Platinum/palladium Alt proc Work Area

	Do NOT coat under fluorescent lighting.  They emit UV and most
"sages" say that they can cause fog in UV sensitive processes.  
	Most say that dim tungsten is fine but I also take the extra
precaution of coating under yellow "bug bulbs".

I use 25 watt yellow bug-lite bulbs in both dry and wet areas when  
working on alt process prints.
