    I understand Guillaueme. My reply was really directed toward the other poster who asked if we might see small runs of black and white paper again from Kodak. I was saying that it was too much to hope for and we should just hope we continue to have current Kodak materials, mainly their color film (I can live without and have good substitutes for everything else, but NOT for Portra or Ektar.)

    The strange thing about this is that AFAIK, Kodak manufactured B&W papers in England and France, right beside the color paper made there until the end in France. Those papers should have been available throughout Europe.

    As for making B&W papers in the home lab, I have been able to approximate Kodabromide, but the others such as Opal and Medalist to name 2, require rather elaborate methods to make. I'm not sure I can do it.

    Making and coating are not difficult, just a bit time consuming. Once a batch is made, you can coat 20 or so 8x10 sheets in one evening. That is enough for a number of good prints.
