    Hello. I have a problem with the printing of BW film photos. Often (1 photo from 10) has a almost unnoticeable stain. But after the toning it is so not good-looking.



    Ususally I printed the photos on Ilford Multingrade paper, with Thetenal Eukobrom developer and Tetenal Superfix. I take all, as it wrote in instruction. After that I toned it in brown toner. It is the composition:

    1. 2% acetous solution.

    2. The Bleach:
    - Water - 600 ml
    - Potassium ferricyanide (K[SUB]3[/SUB][Fe(CN)[SUB]6[/SUB]]) - 50 g
    - Potassium bromide (KBr) crystalline - 10 g
    - Soda ash (Na[SUB]2[/SUB]CO[SUB]3[/SUB]) - 20 g
    - Water - add to 1 litre

    2. The Painter:
    - Water - 600 ml
    - Thiourea (CS(NH[SUB]2[/SUB])[SUB]2[/SUB]) - 5 g
    - Potassium bromide (KBr) - 40 g
    - Water - add to 1 litre

    3. - Cold Water - 150 ml
    - Sodium hydroxide (NaOH) - 15g
    - Pour out this solution to the Painter.

    Please, tell me, what is it? And what I take not correct?
