    Hi Victor,
    the "new" fomatone MG is very fast. I need only 4-5 minutes for my lith-prints.

    I've tried that Kentmere Warmtone too. With an 80*F strong lith bath, you should be in single digit minutes.

    Beautiful in lith too.

    Dear APUG: Have I told you I love you today?
    Thanks for the quick and useful answers.. I just happen to have some of both in stock.

    Ran some tests on the Kentmere Fineprint WT,,very interesting and the most lithy effect of anything I've used to date. Almost pure B&W in fotospeed but a bit more color in the Arista powder 1:10.

    Interesting, if you look in my gallery (and Tom's) you will see a number of prints with that combo. Mine were all in Maco/Rollei/Labor Partner. I haven't tried different developers. I have some Arista powder. I'll have to try mixing it up.

    20x24 ? Try the Oriental you have. It's the old one.

    I'd love to use it Guillaume but I'm using 1/2 sheets (for Horizon negs) and cutting it in half would be a waste of that wonderful vintage 20x24 paper + I know the soft spot you have in your heart for the H-202

    Update: the fomatone is also fast enough now that I'm mixing my Arista Lith (powdered) developer alot stronger -aka 1:7 + 1 part old brown and keeping my tray warm alla Mr. Bertilsson.

    Thanks All.
