I'm curious to try the toning.
  I've found that I get silvering with my van dykes ( a kind of Kallytype)
when I have an uneven coating, with the silvered area being the part
with the heaviest coating.I've been lightly smoothing out my coating
with a paper towel which soaks up the extra solution . I've been
applying with a brush and the side I start with is already drying by
the time I get to the other side of the print, so even coating has
been a challenge for me. The prints are up to 110" by 16", and the
paper towel smoothing has been helpful.
Try a thinner more even coating and see if that helps. I'm guessing
about what is causing the silvering, so if anyone knows the real
cause let us all know. Jamie Young
