I want to print portraits using the lith technique which is completely new to me. Tim Rudman's book regarding lith just arrived from Amazon and I am reading with great anticipation and expectations.
Also, I just read the thread about lith papers with warmtone papers, especially Fomatone warmtone VC FB papers responding well to this technique.
1) there are several versions of Fomatone Classic VC FB. Which versions would be best for a beginner? Do the different surfaces (glossy, matte etc) or color bases work equally well and it is just personal preference?
cream base warmtone matte
cream base velvet semi-matte
cream base warmtone glossy
cream fine art base chamois warmtone
natural fine art base warmtone
2) I want to buy a developer kit first and need some guidance. B&H doesn't have much to chose from so I guess I will be ordering from Freestyle. Would either the Moersch Easylith A&B Lith Printing Paper Developer http://www.freestylephoto.biz/12034-...-ml?cat_id=301 or Arista Premium Liquid A&B Lith Developer http://www.freestylephoto.biz/160401...art?cat_id=301 be appropriate?
