    Glossy paper for Platinum/palladium

    Hello, to everyone,
    I'm a italian contact printer that I usually use for my work AZO paper, it's a bit of time that I've been trying pt/pl print for my 5x7 works using 320-cot paper with a good result.
    I would like to know if there are in the market some glossy papers for pl/pt prints or like I've seen you this forum like to use FB paper to coat pl/pt emulsion but I din't realize like to do it.
    Thank for every your advice

    Best

    There is supposedly an Italian company that makes a fibre based baryta coated paper that might work for you. I have been unable to contact them. You might have better luck.

    I have not been able to locate any reliable contacts for this company, or reliable addresses. It could be that they are no longer functional, but it may be that they once supplied Ferrania.

    In Italy at the moment it's impossible to find pl/pd coated paper because there isn't interested in it, Ferrania should be works and I know some dealer but it dosen't make pl/pd paper coated.
    I saw the reply that you send me with the link, it's very interesting, and I read it, but there are some parts in it that I didn't understand.
    1) How many drops od Tween I should use?
    2) How can I undestand when it is the emulsion right coated?
    3) How can I have the booklet of this method?

    I have found my reference.

    Try Ecco in Firenze, telephone 055-571282.

    They supposedly have a baryta only paper for coating on. If you have any luck, please share your information. The abbreviated catalog they sent me was only for pre-coated photo papers.

    Thanks for your information,
    I'll try to phone to Ecco in Florence (I live near Florence more and less 15 KM) so maybe I'll be able to go there.
    When I'm having news I'll post it.

    Hi All

    I make some platinum on Baryt coated paper. I get some from Bergger who can supply everyone interested in getting some paper without silver.
    But I also use other paper I bought and then fix and wash and get better easier result. I then give an acid bath to the un silvered bergger paper and thing turn ar the other paper.
    Easy coating and drying, and no need to double coat. So what ever the paper I use I should give it a bath.


    An intersting paer is the Kentmere classic. It has a really different llok comapre to other FB Paper.

    Hi Nze,
    thanks for your advice, I would like to know your method about also the acid that for silvered berrger paper.
    I tried to coating a FB paper, fixed and washed, but with one good result and one worst.
    I'm interested in baryt coated paper to use in my platinum/palladium prints.

    I suggest using your normal paper, and hand waxing/buffing the paper when it dries. You can use Dorlands Wax Medium, which can be found at any art store. You simpled put a glob on the paper, and sorta massage it in with your fingers, then take a lint free cloth or soft paper towel and buff it out like you would when waxing a car. It will dry to a hard glossy finish, and will not change to tone/color ect of the image. It also protects the surface.

    If you want EXACT instructions on how to do this, send me a PM and I will tell you.
