No on that one - but I do make sure most of the water is wiped off my prints before they are placed on the screens. Surplus water is easily removed with a clean squeegee or similar. But if you felt...

It is a good developer and I used it for years but switched to HC110 which I still use. Going from memory you can use the HC110 dilutions, but do a check before doing so.

The old Foma did lith and bromoil very well, it was also a great paper for toning / straight printing. However, the emulsion was changed a few years ago and the new papers were not the same.

Good to hear those who tuned in enjoyed the program. We also thoroughly enjoyed it and there was a lot to take in I feel. So much so we shall probably re-watch it in about 6 weeks time.
