Gold Toned Kallitypes

Kallitype prints are a silver-iron process. In addition to differing from VanDyke Brown prints in chemical processing, they also allow for contrast control through the addition of potassium dichromate in the developing stage. Toning with gold gives the print a beautiful warm tone. In this process, the noble metal gold replaces the silver in the print. This gives the print an unrivaled archival quality.
