[pure-silver] Re: Problems with KRST????

Hi,

When she gets back from scholl, my wife knows I've been toning.

Cheers,
Bogdan

from using it is it has a strong ammonia smell.  Does
yours?

I've run into some unexpected problems toning with

KRST. ...
I diluted the selenium 1:9 in distilled water as

is my habit.
By the time I had the second sheet of Kentmere in

the toner,
the toner started turning brown and by the fifth

sheet, the
toner looked like liquid fudge

This sounds very odd.  I have had very small amounts
of a black flaky precipitate form in the bottle but nothing like you describe.

I did have something like this happen once - though
it
wasn't with KRST.  I had added alcohol and ammonia
to a jug of distilled water to make window cleaner. Then, of course, forget what was in the jug and used it as

distilled water for making up chemistry.  I couldn't
figure out what was going wrong ...

Could you be using spent fixer instead of distilled
water? The silver in the old fix will go a deep red-brown color by the action of the KRST.
