    Single Weight fiber paper

    Hi, I am looking for Single Weight fiber paper, older or new, 24x30cm in size. It would be much easier if anyone from EU can sell due to no custom duty and additional taxes. The trade name of the paper is not so importent.
    Regards,
    Affan

    Slavich still makes single weight graded fiber base paper, but not variable contrast.

    What about Fomabrom, not strictly single weight, but thinner than double weight?

    If you need really thin photographs on fibre base the easiest way is to make them on RC photographic paper and then do "emulsion stripping". RC paper can be split, starting at a corner or edge, and the picture can be peeled off. The "peel" is just the emulsion and a very thin layer of fibre base material.

    I use this technique when mounting photographs on book pages which would otherwise become too thick and too stiff. Emulsion peeling needs some practice to do it consistently and it is much easier if you work with small photographs.
    Photography, the word itself, invented and defined by its author Sir John.F.W.Herschel, 14 March 1839 at the Royal Society, Somerset House, London. Quote "...Photography or the application of the Chemical rays of light to the purpose of pictorial representation,..". unquote.
