Re: haunted VDB
I use 3% fixer now and make 5L at a time.
The prints are 33X48 cm image size.
I use the fixer for 5 prints.
The prints do bleach a little but they darken so much when dried and
oxidized that over compensate the bleaching.
After drying, i wait 24hrs to put them in the plastic sleeve.

BTW, I reuse fixer unlike Sam because I mix it in 1000ml batches
20g is easier, especially so with kitchen measuring spoons as I do).
almost 8-9x the volume what Sam uses per print. So, if you use
like Sam does it's indeed a good advice to use fresh for each print.

I "develop" in plain water for 5 minutes and fix.
I don't change the water during development. Should I?
