WOW! What a great idea Judy. Did you also invent the wheel back then too?
Lights, glass, who's FO, perhaps, Potassium Oxalate instead, even hotter,
lots of methods could work.
What's on hand? what else are you already doing to make it flatter. Solution
strengths in use.

In the REALLY old days, like practically before the invention of
electricity, we used to simply flash an exposed print to reduce
contrast... Primitive as it is, the method has the virtue of easy testing:
You can move your opaque shield across the surface in steps , as many as
you can fit in, pick one that looks promising and try on a larger area.
(Or maybe you already ried that? )
