Toning B&W Print

Workshop

Toning
Toning is a technique to change cast of black-and-white prints and create a toned monochromatic image. During the process, metallic silver particles are replaced by silver compound. Different toning processes give different colors to the final print. It usually works better on fibre-based paper than resin-coated ones.

Caution : it is a toxic process, ventilate the room and wear rubber gloves.

Toning is interesting for two reasons:
.Change the colour cast
. Increase chemical stability and archival quality (longevity) of the print over years (sepia, gold toning)  or  decrease stability (iron, copper)
