Note to self: Solarol does not last

That's it really--all I wanted to say or note at this point:  Solarol does not stand the test of time.  We mixed up the can (the whole can, mind you) at the end of January and when I went to get some of the stock last weekend (mid-Mayish) it had turned a beer-piss brownish-yellow color.  The chemicals were still able to impact the prints, but it took longer and the Mackie line effect wasn't nearly as rich or contrasty.  So yeah.  I ordered another can--mainly because this stuff is getting harder to find--but this time around, I won't prep the whole can but measure the two powders out and mix smaller, hopefully single-use, batches.
