Fotospeed Gold Toner is a single concentrate that requires no dilution.
This toner can produce a warm glow of peachy reds when used on a sepia toned print, or cool steely blue hues with a neutral fiber paper.
Gold toner is provides excellent print permanence on both fiber and resin coated papers with or without color change.
Solution can be reused. Properly stored, the toner will last for several years.
Fotospeed toners have been specifically designed for the toning of black and white silver based emulsions.
The toning process involves the conversion of the black silver within the print to another metallic compound. When correctly toned, the image will be chemically stable.
Toners such as Selenium and this one are ideal for archival permanence techniques.
Toning techniques are carried out after the print has been fully fixed and washed and are therefore performed under normal daylight conditions.
Toning is very much in the creative domain of the user. When toning it is important to observe the shift of color in the print.
