    Forte photographic paper

    Does anyone know of a source for Forte polywarmtone Art Fiber base paper? I am a colorist using Marshal oils to paint photos. Recommendations for other fiber based papers that absorb oils would be appreciated also.

    I do a lot of hand painting on the Ilford MGIV matte. I also use their warmtone semi-matte.

    Forte went out of business several years ago, so I doubt you'll find anyone who has any of this paper for sale, and if they do, its expired.

    Apart from a lucky find of old stock at the usual place your only hope would be The Polywarmtone Project

    Foma 123 is good, the velvet stipple surface.

    Ilford Art 300 works very well for hand colouring

    Me, too. And Ilford's Art300 is a dream with pencils.

    I bought a lot from the last batch made and it's still perfect.

    I've also got somee Fortepan 200 in 10x8, that's fine as well.

    Thanks Eddie. May I suggest Ilford's multigrade art 300 paper. It is fiber based and holds oils very well. Ektalure it ain't, but it is the best I have found since Forte went under. It is made by Hahnemuhle and sold by Ilford.

    Thanks Michael, I'll give it a try. Does it absorb oils well?
