C41 Developing - A Journey 3

Mixing the Chemicals

Cinestill c41 kit comes with well documented instructions for mixing the chemicals.

Initial Notes

  • USE DISTILLED WATER *you can use tap water, but it is strongly recommended to use distilled to avoid any unfavorable reactions
  • •Use water at the temperature you want to use to develop your film. This allows for shorter warm-up time
  • Stir continuously while mixing
  • Keep everything very clean. A few drops of Blix, soap or other contaminates can destroy the developers.
  • Mark your containers clearly. This will prevent confusion and processing out of order
