    Re-doing selenium toning

    I'm putting together a series of prints on Ilford FB warm-tone. These are being selenium toned.

    If I later decide that one particular print needs a bit *more* toning, after it has already been toned, washed, dried, flattened etc, is it safe to repeat the selenium toning process for that print with an aim to increase the toning effect?

    Yes. As long as no other toning process was performed on it as well.

    Great, thanks. Hopefully I won't need to re-do the process, but it's nice to have the option up my sleeve should I decide that one print in the series is a little lacking in toning once I've finished.

    You could even later brown toner after Se if you wanted to as well. Almost nobody tones in selenium until completion (same with brown toning).
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.
