    Does anyone know if single weight variable contrast fiber paper is still available and if so what is the brand and where can I find it? Thanks.

    I have ordered some of that stuff before from freestyle and was not very satisfied with it. The sheets felt too "paper-ey".

    Has good contrast and nice greys.


    I would defiantly try it out though. Different strokes for different folks, eh?

    IIRC, Slavich is available only as a Graded paper
    and may be the only single weight paper on the
    market.
    It can be made variable through processing. Dan

    I've never used it, but Fuji Bromide Rembrant is the only single-weight VC paper I know of.
