No. 1. To make sepia tones, print about two shades darker than desired when finished. Wash through two changes of clear water. Then place prints in a strong salt solution, two ounces of salt to a gallon of water. Keep in salt water for five minutes until they redden up. Then wash through two more changes of clear water and tone in the following bath:

Water......................................................................60 oz.

Chloride of Gold............................................................1/2 dram.

Sal Soda enough to make red litmus paper turn blue in ten minutes.

Work this bath just slightly alkaline. Just clear the whites and place in stop solution of salt water and fix in ten grain hypo bath (to which add a handful of salt) for fifteen minutes. If prints look yellow in fixing bath, they will come out all right in the washing and drying. No. 2. Print about two shades darker than desired when toned. Wash through five changes of clear water and tone in a plain gold bath.

Water..................................................................... ..60 oz.

Chloride of Gold.. .. .......................................................1/2 dram.

Work this bath just slightly acid. Keep prints in the bath just long enough to clear the whites, then place in clear water and wash through one water. To the same gold bath, add another half dram of gold. Now add alkali enough to turn red litmus paper blue in a couple of minutes. Place prints back in this bath and tone the shadows to the point you desire when finished. When toned, place in clear water and fix in a plain hypo bath twelve grains strong for fifteen minutes. All paper for sepia tones should be at least 30 days old.
