sepia tone using colour paper/ B&W neg
What filters are used to create a sepia toned look when using a colour head with a B&W neg? Can other tones be simulated ie, copper, blue, green etc. I intend to use some out of date fuji crystal archive paper processed in RA4 chemicals.
Yes, you can simluate all sorts of tone on colour paper. I've only done it with BW400CN (chromogenic B&W film), but basically, you make a test print, and then use the normal colour balance procedure to find the appropriate tone on your RA-4 paper: more green = remove magenta, more red = remove M+Y, etc.
Sepia is a slightly red colour shift. B&W negatives may be harder to balance, because they do not have the orange correction layer, though.
Using film since before it was hip.

Bogeyes, Hedgecoe has examples of how to do this in his Darkroom Handbook
and I think also in "Advanced Photography"
I'm sure they were also published in the US/Canada as well, because all the spellings are wrong so as not to confuse americans
