    I had tried Mpix a few years back and enjoyed their Metallic Paper to make a few prints, I was wondering if there is something available like that or similar in analog printing.

    Thanks,
    ps I tried a Pearlescent sample pack from Adorama but it wasn't the effect I wanted.

    Yep, Kodak Endura Metallic. I thought it was no longer available, but just checked B&H and it seems to be still with us.

    I used Kentmere metallic based papers in the 70's and 80's, there was a FB version and later an RC. I had a pack of mixed colours metallic green, blue, red, silver and gold but only used the silver & gold commercially. There was also a range of just plain coloured bases as well.

    John Blishen in London sold a range made for Pal by EFKE I think, this and the Kentmere range disappeared many years ago.
