    Slavich Bromoportrait 80 and LITH

    After reading a few threads on the Slavich paper being a sleeper paper with very good qualities, I decided to try some of the 8x10 G2 and G3 Bromoportrait 80 DW paper as the price point is perfect. I've heard it has similar properties of 70's type warmtoned US papers.

    Has anyone tried ths paper with lith developer to see if it does in fact work in this process? As there is not much information about this paper out there, I'm curious to know if the paper has a super coating preventing lith dev to work.

    I have some paper showing up this week and and itching to try it. I guess I'll be the guinea pig this week when my paper shows up if no one has an answer.

    Well, considering that Slavich's Unibrom liths quite wonderfully, my guess is that the Bromoportrait probably would do well also. They both contain old-school emulsions made in an old factory, so offhand, I doubt that the Bromoportrait would have a supercoating that could affect whatever lith properties it might have.

    Thanks Silverhead, That's what I was expecting to hear. I know of one reference to Slavich Unibrom paper in a lith process from Tim Rudman's book World of lith printing. The print looked quite good, and I was hoping the warm toned Bromoportrait 80 version would perfrom the same way... At any rate, I will hopefully test this later this week when my package from Freestyle shows up :-)

    The test Andrew is put a drop of solution B (or some activator from a sepia kit, essentially NaOH) on an exposed strip. No reaction or weak reaction indicates no developers present in the emulsion, and should lith. This according to Moersch site, if I remember right.
