    Ilford Art 300 fiber paper

    I just tried this paper and I find it absolutely wonderful! I thought I would die when the Foma chamois 542 (original) was discontinued. But this is a really good replacement, even if the color isn't the same.

    I only hope it will not go away too soon, before I have a chance to stock up. If anyone out there is listening, I'd like to suggest making some in the chamois color like the foma, with the same ilford art texture.

    Or tell me how to bleach/tone to get that color

    ~cheers,

    Dorothy

    I wonder about tea toning. This image from the gallery is in my favorites. I thought it was chamois paper from the thumbnail.

    Here in Poland it is more than 3 times more expensive than Foma papers ... But if I decide to give a try: should I develop in Ilford multigrade developer, or maybe in Moersch ECO 4812? I like warmer colors in my final prints.

    It has only been recently introduced, so I don't think it will be going away just yet.

    It's a paper I have yet to try.

    Darko - warmer tonality can be achieved with FX-31 (the Paterson ACU paper developer). I'm yet to try the ECO4812... cheers. D.

    I use Ethol LPD 1:4 for warm tone papers. It's the texture here that is so wonderful. Like watercolor paper.

    My first prints with this paper are in the final wash right now (Ilford warm-tone developer 1:9, toned in Harmon Selenium toner 1:6). I'm in love, at least based on what I have seen with the wet prints :-)

    This paper also wow'd me. I picked some up, for Canadian posters, from Rob Skeoch/Big Camera Workshops...very easy to print with, even some of my tougher negs.
    The surface is beautiful, and I especially like how midtones and darker shadows represent (that may just be me, I don't know). I used regular Dektol but want to try with Ilford's terrific Warmtone developer.

    This paper is a big, big winner.
