    Got my Slavich papers!

    I'd ordered it from Freestyle at the end of November, but I'd just remembered that it hadn't arrived up here in Ottawa.

    So, after a busy late shift last evening, I emailed them around 0300, went to bed and awoke at the sound of the doorbell at 0900. It was my Slavich!

    Those guys are the best!

    I am really happy with Slavich, the looks reminds me of Brovera, drys flat, both s/w and d/w, does not dry much darker than when wet, the s/w mounts with little fuss. I have not toned any yet but plan to tone over the weekend. Dont forget to use a red safe light.

    FWIW, this site has information on printing and toning Slavich Bromoportrait paper. I'm not sure how applicable it would be to other Slavich papers, but I thought I'd toss it out....

    I really like this paper as well. I think it's just great. I have in fact toned it with selenium and was quite pleased with the results. example

    What developer do you use? I have been using Clayton P20 1:5, thinking about Ansco 130 or Ultra Black.

    WOW, Mike! The tonality and colour on that is gorgeous, reminds me of Forte PWT. I may have to check out this Slavich paper!

    I used the ZoneVI at recommended dilution. I toned at 1:20 w/Kodak Selenium. I posted up a thread awhile back on this stuff and didn't really get allot of interest in it. Oh well. Probably the best kept secret out there I figure.

    I found a lot to like, I just ordered grade 4 for my older 35mm negatives from the 60's. Although Slavich does well in Clayton I have a bottle of Zonal Pro stashed, and if in stock I will pick some Utra Black. I use gold toner for cold tones, I now have several prints to tone I am eger to see how Slavich reponds. I bought 25 sheets of the silk a couple of months ago which I have not used, seems to be no longer listed on the Freestyle site.

    I see the Bromoportrait 80 in silk on Freestyle's site; for instance, in grade 2 8x10 100 sheets. I haven't checked every combination, though, and I don't see Unibrom in silk finish.

    I agree with Mike and glad to see the secret is slowly getting out.
