I'm wondering what everyone is using and what their tips are for interesting toning techniques.


A couple of mine:

For warm brown tone; all fiber based.

Bergger WT developed in LDP 1:6, selenuim toned 1:9 for about 5 min.

Ilford WT developed in LDP 1:6, selenuim toned 1:9 for about 6-7 min slightly purple/eggplant warm tone

Ilford WT dev in Zonal Pro Warm Tone 1:10, selenuim toned about 8 min very nice warm tone.

I prefer selenium to sepia because of the single process. My sepia seem to go a little yellowy brown for my taste, although I've gotten some interesting ones

Forte poly wt in Kodakalith for interesting slightly pinkish warmtone look.

I'm still doing a lot of experimenting with this and shoot only portraits so some of the partial toning techniques don't work too well because the face will get pretty mucked up.
