    I'm intrigued if you know of a modern combination that gives nice olive blacks?
    It sounds up my alley

    Best Olive blacks use IT8 toner. this is a dichromate/chloride bleach and a Pyrocatechin redeveloped. I can post a link later.

    OK here's the link to Ilford IT-8 Toner, it's one I use occasionally, quite unique olive tones which can't be obtained any otherway. The developer part needs to be fresh or it cuses background staining.

    Thanks Ian! That's beautiful! Love that look.
    I've had poor results with bleaching and redeveloping.....
    However, I'm pretty sure the bleach I made is different than that recipe. I had been trying to play with thiocarbamide. I'm definitely going to give this a try. Thanks again.
