    Fomatone is available as RC and FB and it lith prints very well.

    Cheers

    It is, I find the FOMABROM Variant (IV) 123 is better than the FOMABROM Variant (III) 111/112. The later can be difficult to control but can produce nice very gritty cool toned prints.

    The warm tone papers FOMATONE MG Classic 131/132(FB) or 331/332 (RC) also work well.

    I have also read that the new seagull warm tone FB is good in Lith http://www.orientalphotousa.com/ns_vc_fbII_w.htm

    Bob, the Fomatone MG Classic 131 (glossy) and 132 (matte) are the ones that produce very warm images with orange/pink salmon hues... I've attached a sample image here printed on Fomatone 132.

    Fomabrom Variant (III) 111 (glossy) and 112 (matte) give a grainy gritty print quality that can be amazing, especially in really big prints. For smaller prints it's an acquired taste. That's the second image I attached here for you on Fomabrom 112.

    The Fomabrom Variant (IV) 123 has a slight velvet grainy finish that is great, and gives wonderful grain and warm tones something in between the 132 and 112 above.

    We are going to contact digital files, I want a paper that is fast in the lith chemistry. IWT has its little quirk that I am sure you are quite aware of but I do not want to introduce it to newbies to lith.

    thanks for the sample, I think I would like to try both the glossy and matt.

    In my darkroom Fomatone is faster in lith with developing times in the 5 minute region. The colors react pretty wonderfully to over-exposure and underexposure in the enlarger.

    Thanks for the samples, Thomas. I've recently used tha last of my Maco Multibrom, which doesn't seem to be available anymore. I've got the Foma 131, but don't always want the warm tones. The 112 looks interesting. Anybody want to post any other samples?
