    Default Lightbox exposure table.

    Hey all...building a lightbox exposure table with super blue diazo bulbs.

    Any input on whether to paint the inside black or white? I realize white will reflect more light upwards, but I've also worked with boxes painted black on the inside.

    Looking for all of your wonderful and sarcastic intelligent or otherwise input.

    White. Too early for me to be sarcastic.

    Clay said we would be banned if we didn't stop harrassing the newbies. You are soooooo lucky.

    of course, if you buy a premium membership, you are fair game.

    black or white, i doubt 'reflected' UV off those bulbs is very intense, it's the fresh rays off the top of the bulb going directly to the emulsion that is doing the deed. You could line it with tinfoil, it will double as an alien walkie talkie

    Or you could spray paint it with metallic silver paint. Oh, but then it would get sick and have to be replaced by Jack Haley.

    Better stick with white.

    I think I'm gonna go with the alien walkie talkie method.

    besides, after buying all those fluorescent lighting fixtures, I have no money left over for tin foil. =(
