toners that work on plastic paper? (RC Paper question)

Discussion in 'Black and White' started by ulisse, Oct 7, 1997.

  1. Hello, everyone.

    <p>

    Question: which other toners work on plastic papers,
    besides Kodak Sepia? I have tried Agfa Viradon Brown,
    with no results, and I don't think that Kodak Rapid Selium
    is a hit either. Any suggestions? I know that some toners
    are just for preserving the prints better, but I'm particularly
    interested in changing the tone of the pics (possibly to
    something else than just brown).

    <p>

    PS: I know that most (or even all) toners work on fiber, but I
    just prefer working on plastic.

    <p>

    Thanks a lot,

    <p>

  2. Kodak selenium, Agfa virdon and Kodak sepia all work well on Ilford MG RC paper but did not work well on Kodak Polycontrast RC.
     
  3. I use Kodak Rapid Selenium on RC paper dilution 1:20 just for slight increase of D-max and permanence. Tried up to 1:3 with no significant tone change (ILFOSPEED). On the oder hand all gelatin toners work well on RC papers.
     
  4. I have used a sepia toner that is specifically designed for RC papers. It's made by a company called Berg and it's pretty much the same as any other sepia process: you bleach and then you tone. Results were good and there is an added bonus - there's no smell! Berg makes a variety of toner colours but I have only tried the sepia.
