    No more Viradon... now what?

    Since Agfa Viradon is no longer available what polysulfide toner is everyone using? I see Freestyle has Legacy Pro Brown toner which I guess is supposed to be similar to Kodak Brown toner which is supposed to similar to Kodak T-8, correct? I always thought Kodak Brown toner and Viradon were different beasts and preferred Viradon. I do direct toning on MGWT and indirect on MGIV.

    Now what? Suggestions?

    Photographers' Formulary sells their own brand of polysulfide toner which they claim is similar to Kodak T-8. I make my own using the same formula as PF's (see MSDS). PF also sells the potassium polysulfide.

    Viradon uses sodium polysulfide whereas Kodak uses potassium polysulfide.

    Interesting. I wonder if this is the difference between the two. Can one mix up T-8 with sodium polysulfide instead of potassium polysulfide?
