I am ready to approach a new project which will require a large amount of time in the darkroom.
In essence i will be printing an average of 36 images in one single sheet of 20 x 24 ilford MG IV warm , for an estimate portfolio of 12 printed sheets, i know, it is a lot of images to shoot...
My questions are:
1 ) since the printing will require about 3-4 days for one single sheet, will the quality of the image degrade visibly with the latent image being developed after such long time ?
2) Owning a 16 x 20 print washer, i was thinking to wash the prints by taking off 3 plaxiglass compartments and washing the print "folded so that would not cause any crease on the paper.
Has anybody tried this? If so is there something that i have not thought about ?
Any thought greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
