actually i mean a gold toned argyrotype. probably should have stated
that initially. people have told me the color is remarkably close to a
kallitype, but that don't mean much seeing as you can get a million
color variations with kalli. my prints look like a fairly neutral
brown to me - i don't keep them in the gold toner for more than 3
minutes so they remain relatively warm.

hope this helps,
