To emphasize the growth of the tree over the railings, the print was selectively toned using Tetanal Triponaltoner and selenium 1+4. To me it is a reminder that nature always wins in the end! The negative was actually reversed for printing as I felt the balance was better - something I forgot to mention in the covering note.

The selective toning has been done very well. Did this involve using a rubber masking compound? How easy is this stuff to paint on accurately? I assume that the smaller the print the more difficult it is. What size was this print?


Thanks

It was a 10x8 print which, you are right, is more difficult than a larger print using the same technique.
The bleach part of the toner was selectively applied using a paintbrush and any 'overspill' redeveloped after washing, using another paint brush. the toner was also put on with a paintbrush.
I have never used the masking compound, being happy with this method. I believe that cow gum is as effective.
I don't do much toning and have only done selective type attempts with sepia.

Thanks Mike This sounds like it requires a very delicate touch to do well.


Do you have to constantly play water on the edges of the parts being bleached to avoid excessive overspill as much as poss or is it pure bleaching with a steady hand then the same with dev? How concentrated do you make the bleach?


Once the dev has been applied to the overspill when does the re-fixing come in?


Did you manage all of this print without mishap or did it require several prints to get to this one


My knowledge of practical toning is non existent as you will have gathered.


A small article on your method in the articles section would be useful if you have the time


Thanks


Mike
