This is the first time I've tried Sepia toning. I picked up the two packet Kodak kit and mixed it up late Saturday night but in the instructions it states that you need to put the print in a hardener at the end. I didn't have any such chemical and was just about to go out and buy some when I searched on the topic ( is not responding) and found that if the fixer used in the original process had a hardener then additional hardener was not necessary.


I use Ilford Rapid fixer and it does not have a hardener.

I see a thread on APUG about re-fixing after toning.

So what's the real scoop?

Thanks in advance
