    Anyone ever play with this toner? Easy to use? Does it really give silver look? can you adjust how much silver is made metallic?

    I've used it. Very tricky to use (my prints were 16x20, so that likely played into it). It does give a silver, reflective look. As far as adjusting, from what I remember it is either silvered, or it isnt. The "isnt" parts were more of a brown tone (the toner exhausted before silvering all the black in the image.). Tim Rudman's toning book has lots of information (wish I'd had it back when using the halochrome!)

    it can be lots of fun, but as val indicates it can be tricky. it has a very metallic charm.

    be careful handling after toning as it is delicate .

    I started to use it on Liquid Light (on acrylic sheets).. don't remember the outcome, but I recall not wanting to continue.

    Does this stuff give a look like the time-life series of photography books? Think it's time-life. 70's-80's
    They h ave a very metallic look but have never botheredto research how those repros were done. Similar?

    IF YOU GUYS ARE LOOKING FOR FUN THINGS TO DO WITH b & w PRINTS. YOU SHOULD TRY "CHROMOSKEDASIC PAINTING" PRINT TECHNIQUE.
    THE RESULTS ARE UNIQUE AND VERY INTERSTING.
