Organic Hand Toning… Coffee, Tea, and Red Wine
Organic Hand toning is a vary simple way of toning the “toning” is really just staining the print. So while the staining does last for several years, it will not protect your print from the eventual effects of decay.
Toning with red wine is quite simple. Simply uncork a bottle of cheap red wine and pour into a tray. one 750 ml bottle will suffice in an 8×10″ tray. Pre-soaking your print in a tray of clean water helps soften and open the fibers of a fiber-based paper, which will shorten the time needed in the wine and lets the wine absorb evenly. Anywhere from two to ten minutes will do. Put the print into the wine. Start by checking every minute or two until you get the desired color. rinsing the wine off in cool running water. Allow the print to dry overnight.
Coffee & tea
Both coffee and tea are also simple materials with which to tone. And give a light tan to a almost sepia color. Simply brew coffee and allow to cool, then pour into a tray. With tea, use about 6 tea bags of Black Tea per liter. And Once again pre-soaking the print in clean water. Look at your print every couple of minutes until you get the right tone. A short time in tea or coffee will give you a light, color, while extending the time will give a deeper colour
