With toners like copper which give a radical colour shift, what do you spot with? My Spotone inks can't mix up a strange pink- brown...

You can try with colour print spotting kits, which allow you to mix any colour you like. I don't know anything about their archival qualities, though. They might fade faster than the print itself... Then you will have an unspotted print after a few years.

This is one of the reasons why I put drops of spottone on the back side of a photo (all the different colors) and let them dry. I do the same with color dyes and when I need to spot, I use a moist brush and mix accordingly by picking up a little of the colors I need of the dried tones and mix it on a white part of the same paper.
