    I experimented with iron blue toner and liked some of the results. The brilliancy of the tones is unlike anything I have ever seen. It definitely has some uses.

    To make half liter:

    300 mL warm water
    4 g ferric ammounium citrate
    4 g potassium ferricyanide
    130 mL of 28% acetic acid (or 35 g glacial acetic acid)
    water to 500 mL

    2 minutes for complete toning, any time for parial toning.

    Here are some of the results; they are all scans of 8x10 contact prints.

    I made a youtube video/tutorial about the process,
    and a blog post with plenty of details at this link.

    Any comment or critique is highly appreciated.

    No.1 for me.
    The color punch is extraordinary.

    Would have loved to see it on some old metalest paper.

    Good video you made. Love the look of an 8" by 10" piece of film.
