    Hi Dan,

    I toned in Fotospeed's bleach and sepia, washed the prints breifly and then toned in Selenium - Fotospeed again. I washed the prints and left them to dry.

    Both Forte Fortezo and Ilford MGFB are exhibiting the same problems. Both were fixed initially in Ilford Hypam (non-hardening) in case that makes any difference.

    Cheers,
    Ciaran

    From Kodak: Quick rinse after the sepia then 2-5 minutes
    in a hardening bath then wash 30 minutes. No wonder
    I never opened my envelope of Kodak sepia toner.
    What does Fotospeed say?

    I think I'd rather hypo alum tone for sepia.
    Ever give that any thought? Dan

    Thanks for your persistance. I put the prints in a dilute stop bath, rinsed them off, then took a clean J-cloth and jently rubbed over them while submerged. After a half an hour odd wash they have dried and look great. And are no longer rough to the touch, thanks.
