    In Agfa Rezeptes (books of formulae) they give a number of bleaches and toners which can be used in different combinations similar to the Defender Varigram toner above.

    It's worth remembering that best results are with Bromide papers, you can get weaker colours (Dmax) with warm tone papers but there's plenty of room for very significant variations.

    I've been using the potassium bromide and potassium ferrocyanide toner for a while. My process involves bleaching the print with the toner, washing off the toner and re-exposing the print in sunlight which brings back parts of the print. Don't know how it works or what it's called but it makes for unpredictable but beautiful results. I learned this process from a photographer when I assisted years ago.

    Would you have any print scans? that sounds like a really interesting process and one I wouldn't mind trying out?

    Here's a link of a matted print on Flickr. Different papers have a different effect. Sometimes the highlights are beige and the middle and dark tones are brown.

    You'll have to experiment. I bleach the print by eye. Some details disappear in the bleach then come back during re-exposure. But I expose until the print doesn't change anymore under sunlight. You can't get the same results twice no matter how hard you try. Each print is unique with this toning process.
