Photographers' Formulary 06-0120 Overview

The Photographers Formulary Nelson Gold Toner is similar to Kodak T-21 and is-unmatched in its versatility. Tones range from just a hint of warmth to rich sepia browns.

Toning can be stopped at any time between 5 and 20 minutes. Final images are permanent and are formed by a combination of silver sulfide and gold.

The toner keeps almost indefinitely and its capacity is extended by adding small amounts of gold chloride solution, which is included in the kit.

The toner is relatively inexpensive per print. One liter of solution is used to tone about 300 to 400 - 8 x 10" prints (with replenishment), depending upon tones desired.

The satisfying results of this toner have made it a popular toner over the years.

The chemicals in this kit are used to prepare a working solution, and the kit contains sufficient gold chloride for a replenisher solution.

Best way to preserve your print

I toned a fiber based print with this back in 1981. It has been on display for decades and looks better than ever! The purple/brown tone is rich and gorgeous. Ordered another kit recently, and wonderful results once again. My only caution is that mixing this toner is doing real chemistry. It is complicated to say the least. Nothing the Formulary can do about that. Also toning must be done at 100 degrees F, which could be difficult for some photographers.

Does this toner need to be used at 100F or can I use it at room temperature?
Asked by: Clark C.
Photographer's Formulary states that the working solution temperature for the toner must be at 100F degrees for it to function. Another requirement would be for the print to be fixed with non-hardening fixer. They state their TF-4, TF-5, or Fixer 24 will be fine. They also state to always use distilled water with their toners.
