    Found while cleaning out a closet corner.

    Never-used Kaiser retouching colors for black-and-white. They're similar to those watercolor paint sets you used as a kid, but much fancier and including German instructions. Each of the little color tubs is about the diameter of a US quarter, and much thicker, so one set will last a lifetime. I'm still using a set of nearly full Spotone bottles so I'm not really sure why I bought these. I believe they're now discontinued.

    $10 plus shipping. Sadly, shipment to any non-US destination will be silly-expensive, but I'm game if you are.

    Bought this same set around 1985 and still going strong, the top set of colours is for warm tone paper and the lower set for cold tone.

    OK, this set is for Aleks.

    I found another one! Anyone else in the market for these? Same terms.

    @Richard - Have you ever used Spotone? If so, how would you compare that with the Kaiser "watercolors" approach?

    Steve, I have never tried spotone, I thought about trying some but by the time I got round to ordering they were gone, no longer made, sadly, so I have stuck to using my Kaiser set, I always print on matt or semi matt paper and I guess over the years I have got used to the Kaiser, and the way they are going I think they will see me out

    Bump. I still have two sets of these, unused in the original packaging. I also have a lifetime supply of Spotone, so would like to find new homes for these. $10 plus shipping per set.

    Hi everyone,

    At this point I have more than enough potential takers for the Kaiser Retouching sets, if you haven't contacted me yet it's probably not worth doing. And my Spotone dyes are definitely not for sale.

    Thanks for all the interest.
