  I don't know if I can convince you but it does have a
different look than other processes. Probably because of the
self-masking effect. Properly toned POP is permanent.
Actually, I rather like the color of the original image but
don't know any way to preserve it. Gold toning results in
cold or purplish tones.
   Now, I like Tempura but not octopus. I also don't like
escargot, too much like eating cut up art gum erasers. A one
time lady friend thought I was very declasse for this.
