    Acheving these tones?

    Here is a link to an award winning print on the new Ilford Multigrade Art 300 paper. It says "cool base and neutral to warm image tone". Should I assume this image has been toned (as he mentions that this paper tones well)? How do you think I can get these tones myself? Dev? Strength? Toner? Is it this paper or can I get it with other papers (that I may currently own...)

    TIA!

    I wonder if it's a lith print?

    I expect that warmtone developer and toning has been used. I haven't used 300 yet but love Ilford Warmtone developed in Bromophen 1+3 then toned in Selenium 1+4 to completion. I have a bottle of Harman Warmtone developer on the shelf I've been meaning to try as well.

    That image looks perhaps more like sepia rather than my selenium tones.

    Thanks guys - didn't look like any of my (all three of them) selenium toned prints either. I have been wanting to get some Neutol to try some warm image prints - and then selenium tone them. Just wondered if this paper might have something new to add (in regards to tone).

    I've been quite excited about the new Art 300 paper myself. I plan on ordering some very soon. Perhaps someone can try getting in touch with Jon Butler to ask him how he made the print. The photo community isn't really that large so I'm sure he could be contacted.

    It looks like a split-toned lith print - one toner cold, the other warm, though this can be done in several
    different ways and requires a little practice with the timing, concentration, temp, etc. Hard to guess the
    developer, since there are several options here too. Ilford MG Warmtone is also capable of these kinds of
    effects. My hunch is that the difference between these papers is more related to the texture than the
    emulsion itself.

    In my limited experience with the MG300 paper the emulsion is different to MG Warmtone - it is about a stop slower and reacts much slower (more controlable?) in selenium than MG Warmtone but compared to a matt paper the matt(ish) finish of the MG300 can get some really deep sparkly blacks. Quite a subject specific paper I think, just not found my subject for it!

    Looks like a thiocarbamide (thiourea) sepia-toned print to me, probably with the pH adjusted to give yellowish rather than reddish hues. Could also have some selenium in the mix. Check out Daniel Lin's APUG gallery for some superb examples. His handle is "dlin."

    Here's a link to one of his landscapes:

    Do you mean tone or color? The tone is achieved through negative exposure, development and printing. Print color is achieved in various other ways.

    I think it is lith. Some papers show this putty/slightly pink colour. No idea if MG300 is one of them. Typical for lith is the low highlight contrast and the high shadow contrast.

    e.g. here's a picture from W. Moersch's Gallery, Fomabrom Variant in his Easylith developer.
