I have several basic staining questions. What type of dish do people use for staining with lead? Do you filter your rinse water, and what type of container do you put the rinse water in? How many rinses; 3, 4...? Do you use dilute NaOH for the first rinse after Pb staining? Does anyone have luck with the staining sticks, or is the old fashioned way better? Do you wick off water with triangles of filter paper? If so, any hints on ow to do this? Sometimes my sections are a little dirty. or they seem to lift off the grid. Any advice would be appreciated. I can't seem to find info on the actual technique of staining.
