Nicole - Tintype

I recently produced this tintype of my friend Nicole Haagensen.  It takes about an hour to produce each plate and I'm still struggling with this process.  Immediately after I develop, fix and rinse I shoot these with my dslr to preserve the image.    Sometimes as soon as 30 minutes later the my plates are developing black spots.   I know I'll need to mix fresh chemistry soon to get my plates archival again.  The trick is finding out which chemistry is causing the problem.
