So tell me about pinning
    #4315332 - 06/19/05 11:50 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

I am getting ready to do a large single tub casing and I have been lurking in these forums for awhile.  The one thing that still confuses me is pinning. 

Specifically.

1.  How much light and what spectrum should I give the casing layer.

2.  Is 100% humidity needed for pinning?  I have heard various conflicting information on this one. 

3.  Is cold shocking worth it?  What about dunking? 

Thansk guys.  :thumbup:

1. 12 hours on/12 hours off blue spectrum light. There is enough blue spectrum in most any conventional/fluro lights that one uses in their homes. Even night lights are enough for pinning;.

2. 90-100 percent humidity (or just as high as possible) is best until you see pins. Then drop it a little if you are casing.

3. Definately dunk.
