Hi Brian,

We still have the low wattage / economic (I think they reduce energy
consumption by 30-40%...) halogen lamps (those which fit into a normal
fixture) around here in Turkey. Don't you have those there? If not, I
guess people will have to resort to LEDs or (so called - I mean
here...) 10-15W "refrigerator lamps" (bug lights?) for the coating
station and dry the coated papers in dark... BTW, in my experience,
even 10-12W compact fluorescent lamps can fog the paper considerably,
given they had enough time for it. (I had noticed fogging with trad.
cyanotype after just 20-30 minutes...)
