    I like the look of some of my prints when I overexpose them a little and then bleach in ferri to get that straw antique looking effect. If i refix rather than tone at this stage, is the print going to last very long? Presumably this isn't an archival process :D

    If it's re-fixed and washed properly it will just as archival as a normal un-bleached print.

    Thanks, Ian. That's good to know.
