Re: Removing mold from a railroad print

In photo printing, the print is exposed, then goes into a developer, then to a fixer (which stops the development process), then a water wash for 4-5 minutes. If one wants the print to have a gloss, he uses glossy paper and dries the print face down on a high gloss heated drum. If it is matte finish, it still must be dried, preferably on a heated drum, to keep it flat.
So, water should not hurt it, but care should be taken with the softened emulsion or you can rub it off of the paper backing. Drying it perfectly flat may be a greater issue.
