    Try Fomatone MG 131 - It is a good substitute.

    I use KRST at 1:17 for 2:45 - 3:00 which is just before it switches to eggplant. That is long enough to remove the green and significantly increase Dmax to my eye. I use Zone VI developer 1:3.

    I agree that it dries flat like Polymax did. I still flatten in a dry mount press after the print dries though.

    It seems sad that everyone is looking for the next Forte Polywarmtone but I don't think it is out there. Maybe the new Adox paper will come through.

    Yes, that is also my experience.

    No, not at all. When I look at a toned print, the print color seems pretty neutral. When I compare toned with untoned, the difference is slight though apparent.

    This is my first use of the Ilford Selenium and I haven't used KRST for about five years, now. I assumed they'd be about the same; perhaps someone who knows can comment on this.
