    That would be 1:1:100. I use one part A, one part B, 50 parts water .....or 20ml A, 20 ml B, 1000ml water. I usually also add about 100ml of developer that I saved from the last session (old brown)

    The above is a good starting point. Try Fomatone MG papers for the most dramatic results. ILFORD Multigrade Warmtone can also provide some interesting results.
