Sepia Toning : LUSENET : Black_and_White_Photography : One Thread

I would appreciate some specific advice on sepia toning which I would like to combine with hand coloring. Which brand of toner? Which paper ( I have some Agfa Portriga FB)? Specific fixing instructions? Thanks so much!

Try the Agfa Viradon toner. Start at 1:50 dilution & watch the image change until it is where you want it. It will tone lightly by itself. If you first bleach a bit in ferracyanice bleach then it will tone even more. Agfa has full instructions for it. As to papers, that is mainly a matter of experimentation. The papers, dilutions and water hardness all have a hand in the final results. Another alternative is the Kodak sepia toner kits that mix up in small batches. They work well and have directions enclosed also. Good luck.
