    Art 300 is Ilford's Warmtone emulsion on the textured paper. You can get close for the basic exposure using Ilford MG Warmtone. But, MG Warmtone isn't very much cheaper than the Art 300.

    I whole-heartedly suggest getting a Neutral Density filter, it will help you keep reasonable enlarging times without having to use f/22.

    I often use a 2-stop No. 96 gelatin filter, but find it is not enough density. I wish I had a 3 or 4 stop filter.

    If what I said was offensive, I sincerely apologize. It was not my intention to judge or offend anyone.

    What you said was not offensive at all.
    I just thought you were judging that I was going to try to use an specific paper without have trying and practice with other papers before.
    I have being print for only 2 months about but I have printed hundreds photographs already.

    As I said, I know that some of my questions sound silly. I knew that there is no paper which will have the exactly same time exposition and development. But since I am not a master who know everything, I gave a chance to see if somebody have found a solution to save paper based on their experience.

    I actually printed for the first time on ART 300 today and love it.

    Is this filter the same we use on camera lens?

    If you have one for your camera lens you can use it. In the darkroom, a square gelatin filter would work as well (since you are not walking around with it on the camera).

    I've tried to save paper for years and not succeeded. My Beseler analyzer gets me in the ballpark with exposure. Test strips too small doesn't tell me enough information. From my experience, proper exposure and development saves me time, paper and aggravation. Maybe someone will make an enlarger meter iPhone app that works better than my Beseler PM2L.

    But the paper doesn't scan well.

    Nothing wrong with using a ND filter to increase exposure times but I'd have thought that with Ilford Art and either dichroic head filtration or Ilford multigrade filters at the 5x7 print size, using two or three stops down (f8 or f11)would give reasonable times without the need for f16 or f22
