    I'm really keen to try the Fineprint F.G. Warmtone but am put off by the "semi-matt" finish. Has anyone experience of this - how "semi" is semi matt? I really like the luxurious gloss of MGFB warm tone - how does it compare ....? Not sure I'd like a matt finish

    It's what anyone else would call Satin! Quite nice, varies slightly as to how it's dried.

    I heard back from the nice lday at Freestyle. Here is what she said:

    "I'm sorry it took so long for me to get back to you, but I have just
    received word that Luminos USA does not carry Bromide paper in sheets. I
    checked on their website and they do have it in a mural roll, which is
    described below:

    BROMIDE MURAL R a medium weight textured white fibre base with a silver
    rich fast bromide emulsion. Used exclusively for murals it can be toned and
    handcolored. Available in contrast grades 2 and 3 with an ISO speed of 400,
    only in 51" X 100' rolls."

    She ended up agreeing with me that I should go with JandC if they end up stocking it. I have e-mailed John to try to pin down exactly what they will be carrying. I believe he said they will stock Kentmere - is that the same stuff as the graded Luminos bromide paper?

    Checked Kentmere web-site and it looks like the description of the Bromide Mural R is the same as the Kentmere Bromide, except Kentmere only lists Grade 2 available.

    I hope JandC can set me straight.

    I 'phoned "South West Photomounts" a listed agent in Devon for Kentmere today to ask about getting some paper. They informed me that they do not carry stocks and that it would take months to build up an order worth getting some in. So I've now reserved the last box of Ilford I can find locally and sent Kentmere an Email informing them of their agent listing.

    It's a shame as I tried some of their RC earlier this year and was impressed

    I'm browsing through the latest edition of Black & White and see that Retro Photographic are stocking Kentmere, so why not give Nigel Dear a ring (08452 262647) and place your order.

    Leon - Ilford MGWT and Kentmere Warmtone do not compare at all in my experience. They give a very different tone to each other.

    Whilst I'm here just how satin or matt is the Fineprint F.G. Warmtone when air dried?
