    The combination of Ilford WT paper and developer responds very well to bleaching/toning. I use it a lot and love it.

    GAF 135 Warm Tone Paper Developer

    Water: 750ml
    Metol: 1.6g
    Sodium Sulfite, dessicated: 24g
    Hydroquinone: 6.6g
    Sodium Carbonate, monohydrated: 24g
    Potassium Bromide: 2.8g*
    water to make: 1.0 liter total volume.

    Dilute 1:1 with water, develop 2-3 minutes at 68 degrees F. Dilute more for less contrast.

    *For warmer tone, Potassium Bromide may be increased up to 5.6 g/l. Do not exceed 5.6 g/liter.

    I usually used it at 5g/l of KBR.

    I think this formula came from the old Photo-Lab Index.
    For years I used this exact GAF 135 formula, as stated with a max of 5g. of Kbr.

    Searching for more warmth, I discovered the following formula, a close brother to the above, however, definitely a warmer version. GAF 125 Developer, copied and pasted from my working notes.

    stored @ a 1/1 mixture w / H2O
    add 1 more H2O for 2/1 working mix
    or
    Ύ part water & Ύ part used Dev.

    mix Sulfite prior to Hydro & Sodium Carb

    Water @ 1200………………. 2000 ml
    Metol ………………………… 36 g
    Sodium Sulfite ……………… 528 g
    Hydroquinone ………………. 144 g
    Sodium Carbonate …………. 780 g
    Pot Bromide (Kbr) …………… 24 g

    Water to make ……………. 12000 ml


    As stated somewhere in this thread, for more warmth try substituting Pot. Carbonate for Sod. Carbonate, I did and saw no significant gain in warmth and a substantially slower acting developer as a result.

    This is the effect I'm looking for. Was this print toned? I didn't see any info about toners used.

    No, this one's not toned, just LPD stock on MGWT, 15% overexposed then developed for only 2 mins as opposed to my usual 3-4 for LPD.
    If you're in SF it'll be in the Moma Artist Gallery as of next week, you can see it in the flesh

    I made some enlargments last night (my first ones) and got the same neutral-ish tone with MGWT and MG developer. I want it warm... Really warm....I have some lpd that I'll try next.
    I also want to try my 'strong' lith mix with Fomatone to see if I can get that with enlargements like I did with a contact print.

    Definitely give lpd a try with mgwt. Much much warmer. I did 1:4 of the liqui vversion. I think I just replenish it but make it stronger. I want it warmer still. can see the want iof warmth from pt/pd. I want the warmth of wet plate.

    Yes, I didn't find it very warm. I expected a more pronounced warm tone. I also could not get it to do anything in selenium.
