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
