    so in the past i've been able to make b/w photo paper turn orange and purple by exposing the negative on the paper and then putting in thru the chemical sequence but out of order. i know it is something like put it in the developer, run outside, put it in the stop bath. or some combination. but i can't figure out how to do it again and was wondering if anyone knows anything about it.

    thanks.

    I thought that the absence of an indicator stop bath (or when the stop bath was used for numerous rolls of film) was the cause of a yellow/orange color that changes to a purple color? I don't remember...and now, I'm going to look it up because of my swiss cheese memory

    I have no idea. Haven't been in a darkroom since high school. Sorry.

    Swiss cheese is no good LOL...I tried it once and never again!!

    By the way, I have been looking online, but outside of the steps to developing the film, I can't find anything!

    Btw, running outside would make a solarization. [to make one: put exposed paper in developer just long enough that the image just starts to appear, then run outside or shine light on it for only a second and then finish developing the photo. way sweet!]
    I think yellow/orange is under developed and purple is underfixed, or its the other way around. I've seen prints that are metallic, the effect fades in time, that I believe my teacher said is when you either skip the fixer or only put it in for a few moments.
    And it is SWEET when the colors appear, unless you are trying to make a print and dont want color. =]
