    Hi everyone,

    This is my first post at APUG, I hope I've picked the relevant forum for this question.

    Having just read Tim Rudman's book on lith printing, I'm inspired to try it. I wonder if anyone has knowledge to share with respect to toning lith prints with platinum and/or palladium.

    Is it possible? If so what colour changes are likley and where/how does one obtain the toner. Does the print tke on the archival properties of the toner?

    Thanks for any help in advance. :smile:

    Regards,
    Dave.

    I have platinum and palladium toned POP prints prior to fixing, and it makes for a very nice warm appearance. I don't have any experience with Lith prints though. It's certainly worth a try, though.
