Does using a bleach and redevelopment in a sepia thiocarbamide toner
effect print longevity? I'm asking because I had a co-worker over to my
darkroom today. Years ago she worked on her college paper, and she
enjoyed bw printing. But after college, with work, kids, divorce... she
hadn't done anything for years. Recently, though, she found out that I
had a darkroom, and she wanted to make some prints. Well, we did. As
the prints were washing, she said, "Oh, I want that one to be sepia." Oh
boy. I hadn't done any sepia toning for years, but I still had a bottle
of thiocarbimide stock solution from at least 8 years ago. Surprisingly,
It worked perfectly. It was a lot of fun, and I'm thinking about using
it more often. It gave a very nice chocolate brown. We ended up toning
quite a few prints.
