    Agfa Viradon for double toning

    I read an article on Unblinking Eye about double toning of the prints. I would like to try this, but the only brown toner that I can get is Agfa's Viradon. Now would this one work the same as the Kodak's Brown Toner?

    They aren't the same thing but same kind of toner based on polysulfide.

    Marko,
    Have you considered the Moersch toners?

    Digital is best taken with a grain of silver.

    Which combination would you use?
    Viradon is a polysulfide developer, so it should work OK with selenium and gold.

    Viradon + selenium (paterson) work well.
    haven;t tried gold though.

    Seems like original Viradon WAS a mixture of a poly-sulfide toner and selenium...

    If you can get sodium selenide, I guess so. I think the reason the selenium disappeared from the (New! Improved!) Viradon is due to a rather hazardous production procedure...


    In other words: Don't try it unless you know exactly what you are doing.

    Marko, try to get Kodak Brown Toner (KBT) or Tetenal brown toner. Agfa Viradon New is similar to KBT (not the same - you may expect a little different color).
    I have done some double toning so far.
    If you have any questions, you may write me directly.

    Lep pozdrav
