Bleach the print with ferri and choose one (but not more than one)

1) fix it, to make the bleach permanent
2) tone it in sepia to redevelop the image as warm tone
3) redevelop the print in standard print developer (ie. Dektol)

After doing one of these, just wash the print. You don't have to fix after redevelopment.

Do I have that right? I know I can selenium tone after the above steps, or before, which is how most of my prints are finished. I used to bleach a lot in college, but that's a painfully long time past.
I am not too sure if you are talking about toning or bleaching, but as the title of your thread is bleaching - There are plenty of different ways of bleaching in photography, but if you mean with Potassium Ferricyanide solutions, then I think the printer in this video shows a perfect way of doing it. Note how she adds the bleach solution and almost immediately washes it away, at what concentration (guess 1:10 from stock). A gradual process.
