You might try using a weaker (diluted) bleach for a shorter time. It seems the intensity and hue of toning can be controlled partially by giving shorter bleaching times than those recommended by Kodak. I typically bleach only for 30 seconds and still get a strong, though less intense and redder (vs. yellower), color. I suspect diluting the bleach will allow even more control over the result.

My question today is so basic and simple it hardly qualifies as "alt".
I want to tone fiber based photos, but without the strong "sepia" color.
What i want is to just add the slightest tone of warmth.
