I have not toned POP papers, but I have used palladium toners. They tend
to stain gelatine layer (POP papers are gelatine based)and are very
difficult to get rid of. You will end up with a nicely toned image, but a
nasty overall yellow stain. As far as memory serves me platinum would be a
better choice for toner, but I would have to look through my notebooks.
