Chromoskedasic solarizations are sometimes difficult to reproduce. This unpredictability has two main causes. First, the Sabatier- like border effects are due to chaotic diffusion of reagents in the photographic emulsion and in the overlying processing solutions. Very small changes in initial conditions can cause enormous changes in final results.

The very idea of producing colors on black- and- white paper with black- and- white processing solutions seems, at first, incredible. However, the process makes sense when one recognizes that the colors are not due to the absorption of light by dyes, but rather by the scattering of light by extraordinarily tiny particles of silver. The particles do not scatter all wavelengths of light equally, and therefore the scattered light is colored.
