Lith Developer Kit –
1 litre (Lith A 500 ml, Lith B 500 ml) yield 15-30 litres of working solution
100 ml LITH E Additive Starter II
100 ml Lith Ω
Lith Ω is used as a second bath after lith development to increase the colours and densities of warm tone papers. Dilute the stock solution between 1+100 and 1+500 to prepare the working solution. Discard the working solution when it turns dark red in colour.
The Lith E developer – The effect of this additive is highly dependent on the type of paper being used. It should only be used extremely sparingly even with 1+4 dilutions.
All papers exhibit grain clumping in the shadow area to some extent. Oriental paper react with a changing image tone which accentuates the grain, with warm tone papers the effect is much less obvious. Using too much solution results in the Lith colouring being suppressed but with the deepest blacks being brought out.
