    Can anyone that has tried this paper during it's "testing" phase using lith developers comment on how it behaves and looks (I just started using Moersch SE5) compared to Fomatone MG FB matte?

As to the worldwide launch it will be after that date, we will need to make our distributor and reseller partners aware of the ordering schedule and actual roll out and once we have done that, we will let everyone on APUG know as well.

    Thank you Simon

    Thank you Ilford

    I must say it’s a pleasant change to be talking about the introduction of a new material instead of mourning the disappearance of an old one.

    I hope the risk and investment pay off

    Does that mean that for a beginner in lith printing, that one should not try the new Ilford paper as the directions for the Moersch Lith kit SE5 do not recommend Ilford Warmtone FB MG as a paper to begin with?

    I like the results I am getting with Fomatone Warmtone MG FB. Just wondering about the new Ilford Art paper.

    Well if you like lith like I do , you will need to try Ilford Warmtone sometime.
    It is a myth that it does not lith well , just need to dig into it an pull the print sooner.

    Ilford Warmtone is amazing in lith, very versatile. You can get pictures with fine grain, and with coarse grain. You can get deep blacks and really sparkling highlights. Or not. It depends on what you do with it. It's very malleable.
    However, straight out of the lith bath it usually has a greenish color cast, which some people find a bit off-putting. The saving grace is that a quick bath in selenium takes care of this. It also responds fantastically well to all sorts of toners, which can give you an impressive array of colors and results.

    It does take some experimentation and a lot of effort, but once you learn this paper, it's nothing short of incredible. And now we can soon have it in a textured version too!

    We are very lucky.

    Yep - lovely paper. Perhaps a stop slower than the usual MG emulsion but who cares? The thio toned print I made reacted more like the standard FB emulsion rather than warm tone but it will be another 'must have' on the shelf.... may need more shelves at this rate!!
