    Any info on Kodak Elite Fine Art paper

    I visited my local camera store today to pick up some more 11x14 trays and some film, and while perusing though the paper wall I found an old pack of this paper, 10 sheets of 11x14. I was just wondering if anyone could tell me anything about this paper. It's listed as S3 High Lustre. Specifically, I was wondering how it would both lith and also whether it was any good for bromoil. I'll do a test sheet of it tonight or tomorrow, but any info on what I should expect would be appreciated. Also, I know that Kodak doesn't make paper anymore. How long ago did they stop making this particular paper?

    Thanks
    Paul

    This paper lith's incredibly well and very different from most papers.
    I seem to remember it requires a lot of exposure to get what you need.

    Thanks Bob, that's good news! I've got several negs in mind already that I'd like to lith bigger than 8x10, so this should be fun. The store had 4 more packs, though frankly I thought it was a little overpriced ($25 for a 10 pack of 11x14) for such an out of date paper with no guarantee of being without fog. I'll try a couple of sheets tonight, and if the paper looks like it's still in good shape, I may buy the other 4 packs anyway, just to have a bigger lith paper.

    I would think you would be in a good position to haggle with the man at the cash register. That paper must be close to 5 years past date.
