    Cool tone FB?

    Does anyone make a cool-tone fiber paper? If not, what is the "coolest" tone paper. I'm referring to the opposite of warmtone paper, and not which paper would Fonzi use.

    Aaaayyy!

    I don't know of any, but that doesn't mean they don't exist. I use a cooltone developer, like Ilfords, or Burki and Jenny's cold tone developer. You can also add Benzotriazole to a developer to get cooltones, and you can bleach back in a rehalogentaing bleach and redevelop in a cooltone developer for even colder tones.

    I really dislike cool tone papers, so really cold tones to me may not be cool enough for you. But personally I've found Bergger NB to be very cool, you can probably add some eggplant with selenium as well. Developer will of course make a very big difference it image color.

    I think that Kentmere Fineprint VC FB paper developed in Zone VI developer is cold-toned (especially when it was in the tray next to Forte Polywarmtone).

    Les McClean had some Ilford MGIV in the Ilford cooltone developer prints at the apug conference that looked very nice.

    Best,

    Forte Cold Tone if you can deal with their QC problems.

    JandC's Nuance in Dektol also gives a pretty cool tone like the old Oriental Seagul (Not much left argh)

    The current Oriental VC FB paper is pretty cool and cold.

    Ilford cooltone, Tetenal Eukbrom or Kodak Dektol are cold working developers, used with Ilford MGFB, Kentmere Fineprint FBVC or Kentona for a cold tone print. Cool of even further with brief gold tone.

    Forte Polygrade is a beautiful cooltone paper, gives deep blue-blacks, depending on the developer you use (e.g.as above post). Can work dramatically in portraits, depending on your subject. Makes a good change from Forte's warm tone papers, which I also use.
