zsoltmajzik Posted July 9, 2019 Share Posted July 9, 2019 Hi Everyone, Recently, I restarted my darkroom printing. I have still few hundred 8x10 Ilford Multigrade IV RC DeLuxe Paper at home and I used those. I have a problem that after fixing and turning the light on few dark (silver) spots appear on the prints (see image). The location of the spots changes randomly but I can't get rid of them. They seem to be silver silver halide spots, not removed by the fixer and activated by light. I tried different development time and fixing time: between 1 and 4 minutes. All chemicals are fairly new, only few prints have been made. I use Ilford Multigrade developer and Ilford fixer, and stop bath between. I don't do hypo clear for RC papers. Do you have an idea what could cause the problem? The papers are few years old but they seem to work fine, apart from these spots... I would like to use them up, if I can..
