..it depends..;-)..

On the size of your print, how much silver is there, how long you tone, if
you leave the borders there (they "soak up" a lot of gold).

Just try it diluted, and re-use the stuff until you see no colour change..

best,

Cor

(ps I am no tetenal expert, I usully mix a small amount of toner myself, it
has been sometime ago I used the Tetenal)
