Sepia Toning : LUSENET : B&W Photo: Alternative Process : One Thread

I need basic steps for sepia toning. Unable to find websites with info. I would also like to know if anyone has experience with selective toning. Tina

Sepia toning is a two-step process. The first step is bleaching, which is typically accomplished with a standard ferricyanide bleach. The second step is toning, which is typically accomplished with a sodium sulfide solution. The Ansco or GAF 221 formula can be found here: m/~mrjones/ss221.htm

Selective toning is accomplished by not bleaching the entire print-- toning only takes place in the areas that are bleached.
