    Centennial Printing Out Paper

    I want to try the Centennial Printing Out Paper. However, most of the prints I've seen have an orange/brown color, but I've seen a few that were neutral and even slightly blue/black. Does any know how to make the paper shift to neutral and blue/black? I've read that can be achieved with extended toning in gold. Thanks.

    Use borax (20 Mule Team from the grocery store works great) instead of the ammonium thiocyanate that you get in the CAW toning kit. There are instructions in the kit for different gold chloride toner variations.

    Platinum toning is good and gives yellowish-to-neutral images -- but it's hellish expensive.

    You could also try Selenium toning- I've used it on pt/pd and gotten a very deep cold black, but it absolutely kills the selenium toner- one batch is only good for a few prints.

    Try Clerc's thiourea-gold toner described on Wynn White's page on Van Dyke Brownprints . It lasts longer than the borax toner and gives a purplish tone quicker.

    Tetenal Gold toner works just great, and lasts a long time.

    I've never managed to get anything usable from Selenium toner.

    Platinum or Palladium toners should be great too, but are too costly to experiment (much) with.

    With the B&S gold toner kit, I get a pretty "cold" print after around ten minutes in the toner. The paper itself does seem to warm up as it ages. I don't refrigerate it but that might not be a bad idea if keeping it for a while.

    Protect your negative with Mylar. I ruined one neg. It's painful...
