The color in my print looks blotchy, what can I do?

It may seem counter-intuitive, but more dye does not always make your print darker. If your material is too wet condensation may develop under your negative and reduce the quality of the finished print. If your prints are turning out speckled or mottled it is most likely due to excess moisture. Once you've coated your material, blot out the excess dye with a paper towel to prevent this effect.
