2 Make a multiple exposure test strip under image enlarger as usual, process as usual and determine best exposure time. 3 Once the time is determined create a sabbatier test print by exposing for the time determined in step 2, then… 4 Develop print in developer for 1/2 normal development time (1 minute). 5 Remaining in the darkroom move print to tray of running water, do 30-45 second rinse. Squeegee print, place on flat tray. 6 Place tray under enlarger. Stop down lens 2 stops. Make a step test on print (5-25 seconds). 7 Put print back into developer for remainder of normal development time (1 minute). 8 Use stop and fixer as usual. 9 Check your test print. 10 Use test print to determine best 2nd exposure (white light) time and process as usual.
