    Do you think, perhaps on the future, if you have more time, for realize a step by step guide, for the procedure?

    Note:
    I think I will collect more information about paper negatives.

    alessandro, get some B+W printing paper. I got expired Ilford paper for free. Put it in the camera where the film sits, with some sticky tape. Take the picture and develop it in the darkroom.
    Scan and invert the image.
    Or contact print.

    I have a couple of questions about contact printing paper negatives.

    First,do you put the negative, emulsion side up, on top of the print and just blast it with light? (how much does it take to get through the paper base?)

    And second, doesn't the paper texture of the negative print through, leaving a fuzzy look on the print?

    Thanks, Bill

    Bill, yes you do it as if you're contact printing a bit of film. I haven't recorded any of the times I've used to contact print paper, but it's a surprisingly small amount of time IRRC.

    And yes it has some texture.

    Thanks tomalophicon,

    I take it then, one should avoid using fiber paper for his negatives?

    Bill,
    Using fibre would surely give you a certain look that would be pleasing if that's what your goal was.

    when you contact print a paper neg you put emulsion to emulsion..with RC paper I haven't had many problems with seeing the paper fibers. I've only used single weight fiber paper, and that was years aog. I think I ended up waxing the paper to make it more transperant..
    A camera is only a black box with a hole in it....

    you have to be careful with rc paper when making contact prints
    because often times the maker puts a logo / writing on the back of the paper ...
    and it will show through when you print ...

    have fun !

    im empty, good luck

    jnanian, which manufacturers do this? I've never come across it, other than colour paper.

    I've made roll films with paper.

    Just cut a 60mm strip and roll it up in an old film backing. Because it is thicker than film, try maybe half the length (six shots).

    Best is to position the start by the piece of tape... but don't tape it yet. Roll the film up - then tape it last. Otherwise you will get a kink or bubble.

    I wouldn't stick it in a hassleblad film back - or anything that uses thickness sensing to give auto film spacing, but in rollfilm cameras with a red window it works OK.

    I tested out Harman's direct positive paper this way.
