selelium toned proof

I managed to selenium tone the RC (plastic) landscape proof print using a two bath bleach and tone procedure. To explain, plastic RC proof prints will not tone in the way fibre base fine art silver gelatin prints do so they need to be bleached and then toned in selenium (filthy dangerous chemicals.)  Below is a jpeg of the toned landscape print. Toning definitely gives the print that extra bit that makes it a classic modernist landscape.
