    Hi Everyone...

    My wife handcolors on Agfa Classic. Since they are going out of business, has anyone found an alternative for this paper?

    Thanks,
    Bryan

    Bryan-we have sponsor right here-Kentmere-and if you read through the descriptions of the different papers you will see that one of them is adequate for handcoloring......
    Best, Peter

    Thanks, Peter.

    I checked the Kentmere. They have it only in a grade 2.5. I would like to find something in a variable contrast.

    She uses the Marshall's oils. She bought the advanced set and did not find it necessary to spend the extra money on the master set. She also uses the Marshall's pencils quite a bit. Along with toothpicks, cotton swabs, and Q-tips.
