Sulphide toner question
I need to know how to make a sulphide toner. I have the bleaching out part, potassium ferricynide and bromide but I don't know how to make the toner part / redeveloper. What do I need?
I am going to bleach out a neg and re-dev it in a sulphide toner. I just don't know how to make the toner part.

saw this in another post regarding neg bleaching etc.
page 257-258 Ansel Adams book the negative
been looking at the very same thing last night and tonight
I think I found it, it is just straight up sodium sulfide and water to make it.
From what I read if you have a mucked up neg like I do where it prints flat even at high grade you bleach it out in the ferri until you get a milky looking image then you re-dev it in the sulphide. It is suppose to give you a brown looking neg that is suppose to give extra guts on blue sensitive paper. IT says it won't look any denser but it the blue sensitive paper makes up for it. We will see...
Thank you though for your help.
