    Which larger sizes? I have been printing on 11x14 and have an order in for 16x20, which I cut for 7x17 contact prints.

    In several publications, Mother recommends KRST at fairly high dilutions, which I have never tried. Ansel said "1:9" so that's what I've done, but Mother says 1:40 is an option. See below.

I would also like to selenium tone the prints but I've had difficulty in the past with warm tone papers really going crazy with selenium and changing color completely or becoming just too brown. I dont have much experience with warmtone papers so any suggestions heading in to my trials would be (as usual) much appreciated...oh I should say that I would prefer a glossy surface but wouldnt reject the possibility of going with a matte surface...any experience with the new Oriental Warmtone?...

    zatim ahoj...
    Do you really want the selenium-toned look, or are you primarily interested in the selenium for archival processes. That will make a difference in the paper you choose. If you only want a very dilute selenium solution (roughly 1:64 in Permawash or other washing aid) of the purposes of archival preservation, then perhaps one of the warmtone papers like Ilford or Forte would suit. If you really want the selenium to change the print color, then I'd go with Agfa MCC in whatever dilution of selenium works best for you.

    Dear Zatim,

    If you want to avoid color change, consider using a product called "Sistan" from Agfa for increasing archival permanence.
