    Salted paper trouble

    I love the color toner acquired with palladium, but the Palladium toner has a tendency to move the color of the paper base from white to cream.
    How can I avoid this?

    Will clearing bath (HC110 or Dektol) used in Sullivan's Gold Toning Method?
    Any comments appreciated.

    What toner formula do you use?

    You seem to have clearing problems. Maybe your tap water is too alkaline? Have you tried to wash (first stage, not final!) in dilute (1%-2%) citric acid? That may help... Also there's an option to add citric acid to the silver nitrate solution (right before coating, to the coating mix; not to the stock silver nitrate solution!!!)...
