    Hi, Bromofort is a fixed grade cold tone paper. The box should have a code on it (e.g. BN4); this gives information about both the contrast grade and the surface type (e.g. smooth, mat, stipple)

    I've used it a lot years ago.My favorite cold-tone paper.
    The prints became almost "bluish" with the Fortespeed CTD developer.

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    It's beautiful paper! It was coated in former Kodak factory in Hungary. By my opinion it was the best photo paper made in Eastern block. Forma was second. I had the best results with their own developer listed in small sheet of paper packaged with every box, I think it was called FD-103. Also it was nice and usable after years in storage. Still have some left in 18x24cm, single weight, gradation: special (orange strip) and hard (blue strip). Normal gradation,about grade #3, was with green strip. Have fun with it!

    It's great paper for straight lith (slow to develop, though--but aren't we all), but I love what it does in 2-bath lith; I have enjoyed fooling it in dilute Xtol (1+6, iirc), fooling it into giving up its sensitivity to fresher developer around the edges--one of the effects that you see in the example in Rudman's 2nd book--then into Ultrafine Lith 1+1+12.
