    http://www.macdermidautotype.com/AADocume.nsf/0/2759AC9F75D5DAA580256E680050C3C4/$File/G25%20Pigment%20Paper.pdf

    Carbon printers did not use the Autotype tissue as the blood red color does not make an attractive image. Most of the top carbon printers in the world make their own tissue because it gives them complete control over the process, including image color, amount of surface relief, and contrast for specific negatives. For beginners commercial tissue is recommended and good quality carbon tissue is available from Bostick & Sullivan.

    Since the Autotype tissue was discontinued B&S has come out with a tissue that appears to replace it for photogravure work, with some changes in working procedures due to the fact that the Autotype tissue was on paper and the B&S tissue is on a synthetic material.

    I've seen the B&S forums on the new paper - at the moment it seems the product is still being tested...

    http://www.apug.org/forums/forum42/7...questions.html

    Hats off though

    What are the best resources for learning tissue making ? especially with respect to photogravure/etching ... (and in isolation ?)
    Cleared the bowel problem, working on the consonants...

    I have acquired a lot of tubes over the years. I used to bid on the auction site on about every tube that came up. Every once in a while, I would win at a very low price. For some reason, people tend not to bid in mid to late December, which is when I had the most success getting things cheaply. Put in a low bid and forget about it. If you win, great. If not, there will be another one later. Patience, patience, patience.
    I picked up a couple of NOS 2850/2830 recently on ebay this way. I use them for my 14x20 negs. I typically spend around $75 (bought one for $69 last week).

    I just picked up a couple new 2850 from B&H for $69 each. Sure beats the $184 Calumet wants for the same thing.
