    Thanks, Gary. Useful, if somewhat depressing, information.

    I bought some Kodak rapid selenium toner to tone some Fotospeed lith prints and there's still a really noticeable colour change at 1:40. That's toning for 4 mins. Will try 1:60 and 1:80 when i get a bigger milk carton!

    When I want no colour change, I dilute mine 1+250 !
    Sad news Amaloco (NL) is going out of business...

    Thanks for all your replies.

    I just got an email from Nigel Dear at retro photographic and he told me that when any existing 532 and 542 is gone, it's gone. There will be no more.

    Foma fomatone warmtone is an alternative to consider, I love it after having started out like you looking for a textured paper. Selenium toner worked nicely for me where I had a little too much gold/yellow tones, however it did show up some imperfections and I also learned how delicate the lith process is, showing up some finger prints etc form paper handling. And just read that I should not dry mount them but not sure if that's from a commercial perspective only....gold toner looks beautiful with Foma Fomatone warmtone if you want a cooler look...

    Thanks carmenloofah.

    I am already using Fomatone warmtone paper. I agree it is really nice and tones well whether lithed or not. Just received another 50 pack of it this afternoon.
