    One word of caution if you bleach first, the highlights will go faster than the shadow areas.[/quote]

    Aggie,

    Try bleaching twice. For the first use a very dilute bleach, 1 to 30 or 40, and leave the print in for perhaps 20 seconds, you will need to experiment. Wash and tone in sepia toner, this will render the highlights permanent and allow a second longer bleach in stronger solution. The end result is that you will have very slightly sepia highlights but the remainder of the image will change as you describe.

    You might also try bleaching the image and instead of redevloping it in selenium place it in the sun to develop as a sun print. I've done this with regular papers with great success but never with a paper such as Azo. Another variation is bleach and redevlop in very very dilute lith developer. You do have to watch the redevelopment for once it starts to develop the image goes through a number of subtle changes before developing fully.

    Please buy your Azo from Michael A. Smith. It's important to Azo's future.

    If you do, I would be interested in how you source it.

    Art is a step from what is obvious and well-known toward what is arcane and concealed.

    Lets not let this turn into one of 'those' threads. It sound's like Aggie has found a really interesting toning technique, hasn't she?

    I agree!

    lets keep this thread focused on the what Aggie has found. I like the look of her prints and want to hear more about them.
