    Make sum if you can find white toner. Just wash out or run out the color or black toner.
    And add your white toner. You would need to figure out the TC ratio.

    What are you going to do with this white toner?
    Whatever

    I wanted to practice for fun.

    but if I run out of black toner for example and put white with the black developer, don't I get something gray?

    if I wash it, won't it be ruined?

    Depending on the machine you are playing with, unless it is engineered to run white toner, you may create a major headache. Just imagine how a machine that is designed for a toner patch to determine toner level would react to white toner...

    Yea true but in machines like the BH423 or TCR only control machines it should work there is no ID sensor.
    Developer is charcoal grey in color so if there is only developer and white toner in there it should work.
    That is how yellow works on the color, that would be the base i would start from.
    I would start out yellow then go pastel and the eventual white after like 500-1000 full page prints.


    Should even work on machines with ID sensors as it does not discriminate color just the amount of reflection returned from the drum or transfer belt.
    Could possibly overtone slightly due to a higher reflection from the white. Then with KMBH i know you can adjust the ID and TCR ratio to suit.

    Where to find white toner?
    Whatever

    ok i see HP does white toner. But that will probably only work on mono component machines.

    Ok not HP but for HP.
    Whatever

    Or you can fool the toner density sensor with a paper package with the right mix in there(6.5%) and strap that to the sensor with some tape then run full tone prints until the prints are blank
    and nearly no toner remains in the developer.

    Machines that do support white prints must have white starter develop or complete developer tanks.

    UV printers does support white ink...

    Now if you can do a nice gold copper or silver toner you will be in business.
    But that would probably need to contain real metal pigment that would be problematic for electrostatic printing i would think.
    Whatever
