RE: spot tone

Try watercolour pigments, with water and a drop of gum arabic to help it
take.  A mixture of Winsor & Newton ivory black and raw umber can
approximate Spotone No. 3.

Although not yet an alternative process, but soon to be, is the gelatin

I just learned that the company that made Spot Tone has gone out of
business! Since we are committed to keeping the art of "wet" photography
alive and sometimes must spot our prints, does anyone know of a source for
Spot Tone? We tried the Marshals product but it falls short of good old Spot

Desperately seeking Spot Tone 3
