    Has anyone any experience of the new Foma 532 Nature paper. On the Silverprint website it say “visually very similar to Kentmere Art Classic”. Does it respond to lith, I suppose to answer is buy some and see, just thought I’d ask first.

    I bought a pack of 16x12 recently (9.5 x 12 is apparently no longer available). I have a lot of experience of Chamois and Fomatone Glossy. Chamois' lovely but lacks contrast compared to glossy since it has a very creamy base. Nature is, if anything, even whiter than Glossy and produces better contrast than Chamois. You either lovely the the texture or you don't - I love it and it does produce wonderful liths that tone nicely in selenium.
