Photograpers Formulary Sepia Sulfide 221 is a classic bleach and redevelopment toner that produces rich permanent sepia-brown tones. Most types of paper tone well with this process, including resin coated paper.

The bleach contains potassium ferricyanide that changes the metallic silver to a silver salt. After bleaching the print is then redeveloped in sodium sulfide.

      Comments about Photographers' Formulary Toner for Black & White Prints - Sepia Sulfide 221:

      Toner works like the Kodak Sepia toner did. I personally think this toner is more consistent. I used it on both Rc and fiber paper. The times for the bleach are quick. Rc was about30sec for almost complete disappearance of the image and split toning was 15 seconds. No real lost of image or contrast on RC.Fiber was also kind of quick in the bleach. Split toning was 35 seconds and full was 50 seconds. Fiber needs to be about 25% darker than normal. I found when you get a print just the way you like it to open the stop up about 1/3 of a stop and use that for the toning. It gives great repeatable end results.
      For me I would say to follow the directions as to ventilation, they are not kidding.

        Used for toning neutral or coldtone Ilford papers. Great results, simple bleach and redevelop process. The chemicals are of high quality, and come in easy to mix pre-measured containers. Photographer's Formulary is the go-to for most darkroom chemical needs.

            Comments about Photographers' Formulary Toner for Black & White Prints - Sepia Sulfide 221:

            This is a good sepia toner for high quality prints. I have used it with fiber based paper and had great results, even up to 16 x 20" format. The bleach works quickly and there is no guess work-just let it reach maximun fade and then tone. Toner is the same, agitate a bit and wait for the print to reach full tone. If you liked the old Kodak toner, this is similar. One difference: there are three components to mix and the mixing process requires more effort due to temperature requirements.

                  Just used this product today. Works like the old Kodak sepia toner. Excellent results. Mixing takes a little effort, but the results are very good.

                    Comments about Photographers' Formulary Toner for Black & White Prints - Sepia Sulfide 221:

                    The chemicals are in liquid form, so they mix easily and quickly.

                    No odor! Don't know if that means it works better or worse than those with a foul smell, but a definite plus, because I can work inside.

                    I've only used it with RC paper so far, and haven't tried it on fiber papers, so I'm not sure how to rate it's effectiveness on fiber.

                    Both solutions also work very rapidly, even faster than the suggested times. I didn't like that aspect of the product. That may be due to using RC papers.

                      Instructions were very easy to follow about mixing the chemicals. The tone was beautiful! Of course this is the sepia with that rotten egg smell, but a true sulfide sepia toner that worked wonderfully.
