Still searching for a decent colour ballance with RA-4 darkroom paper.

It turns out that it’s overly sensitive to blue light. If left unfiltered, everything turns shades of blue, with no chance to get decent exposure in the other two colour layers:

Filtering with one layer of clear C-41 (print) film base seems to be meaningless in daylight as well:

Actually the only time I got reasonable colours was with incandescent light and a single filter layer:
