First attempt at selective toning using a small paintbrush.


Apologies for the quality of the print scan.

Certainly Ian,


I used strong (1+2) ferricyanide bleach, the one supplied with fotospeed's sepia toner pack, and directly applied it on areas to be toned, with a small pointed brush.


After a 10-15 minute rinse under running water, immersed entire print into Sepia bath (65ml additive to give mid-brown to brown). This stage lasted less than ten seconds, presumably as bleach was very strong.
Removed quickly back into running water for 20-25 minutes.


As this was a practice run, I decided to give a quick immersion in 1+9 selenium for less than 30 seconds, just to hold on to the deeper blacks.


Another long rinse.....


Finally, a long immersion in an almost exhausted Tetenal gold toner for 30 mins to slightly redden the brown (seen better on the print than the scan).


A nice result with the print, but I'm only regarding this as practice, and a few hard-earned lessons were learned which will be applied to future work. So overall, a worthwhile session.
