No stand development

I tried the recipe of the last post with an Agfa Vista 200 film and it is now clear that one must keep the agitation all the time. Letting stand one gets the shadows of the film holder on the photo and perhaps it affects the color layers balance and color development in general. So, please correct my last recipe like this:


Bath
Duration /min.
Temperature / ºC
Obs.
CD-4
5
R.T.
Continuous agitation
Caffenol
10
38
Continuous agitation
Rinse
1
Warm from tap
3 times fill
Bleach
2
30-38
Continuous agitation
Rinse
1
Warm from tap
3 times fill
Fixer
5
20-30
First minute agitation
Washing
30
R.T.
3 times fill and then take from tank and leave in water
Dry
90 min.
R.T.


And this means that I almost ruined another film with these experiments. I say almost because it still can furfill artistic purposes but not the photographic ones.

Examples:

Example 1

Example 2

Final note:

Fuji Color gave a green transparency and Agfa Vista 200 gave a magenta transparency.
