    Hi - I made 1L of Liquidol (which I mix stronger than recommended 143 Liquidol to 857ml water), then I added 30ml of a 1% sol of BZT and 2grams of potassium bromide.

    I did not try to print w/o the BZT and Potassium Bromide so I am not sure if it would have worked out as well w/o both.

    This thread inspired me to do "the double duty" (BZT and Potassium Bromide). The BZT alone didn't do as well as when I added in the Potassium Bromide.

    As I sit here and type, I've a Ektalure print that I did in BZT/potassium bromide in the wash after taking a 1min 20 sec bath in gold toner (T-26). Gosh does it pop! Will post a pic tomorrow or so after it drys.

    Thomas, you are an old pro at Ektalure, does it work well with only potassium bromide or do you need the double duty of BZT and Potassium Bromide when the paper shows signs of fog? Thanks for the comments T.

    Continuing to mess around with a test strip of Ektalure, I toned it a bunch of different ways, if this is of any value to somone wondering how an old Ektalure sheet of paper might behave, enjoy:


    Test strip above dev in Liquidol with 30ml of a 1% sol of BZT and 2 grams of potassium bromide:

    Here's a Liquidol/BZT/Potassium Bromide print toned in 100F gold for 1min 20 sec:


    The ones to the left under the main print are Liquidol/BZT and leftmost is just Liquidol

    The paper surface reminds me of the (currently available) Ilford Art300. That has, more-or-less, the emulsion of FB Warmtone on it - so it might be worth a test for anybody looking for a nostalgic style paper. There are some interesting Foma paper surfaces too, in their fibre-base papers.
