    Hey,
    Last night I found in the darkroom a box of Chamois J&C. Triple weight.
    it's a beauty in Lith.
    Who was the original manufacturer ?
    Too bad it's gone.

    Ok Mon Ami

    I have just finished a new series of images, and I want to make some 11x14 portfolio prints, eventually Murals so I need a lith paper that works well in 30 x40 and larger sizes.

    What are you recommending these days, I did like the foma that I used on that class at G 44 , I am posting the look I am after with one of the images, you will note warm highlights, peach upper mid tones and cool cyan shadows.

    recommondations Jerry?

    Bob, you might give Mirko at Fotoimpex a nudge - he was working on re-inroducing Polywarmtone :D

    It always seems to be difficult to get them in such large sizes.

    I have been asking Mirko for a 30 inch roll of Adox since the day he posted here , unfortunately I am not on his radar.

    can I get the Oriental in 100ft rolls?

    solarization is the new lith, do not dare try it.
