The reversal step occurs during color development in a Color&Reversal bath, and the bleach and conditioner steps are combined with the fixing step in a Bleaches&Fixer bath. Color-timing is performed with alternative 1st Developers to achieve full creative control of your slides.
Mixing Stock Solution
Store mixed solution in a tightly capped storage container with air inside for 2-4 months. Aerate frequently. Oxidation encourages activity of bleaches. When film wont clear after 10 min retire chemistry and re-fix film.
Bleaches&Fixer Bath: Stock > 6-10min @ 75 -104°f (23-40°C)
This is a process-to-completion step. Time is minimum for completion.
Maintaining temperature is not essential beyond pouring in the 1st developer. When a temperature control bath is not available, simply preheat the 1st Developer +2ºF warmer, and the other baths will automatically process-to-completion as they cool down. Only the 1st developer is time and temperature critical because it controls contrast and color.
