    Suggestions for bromide printers for carbro?

    Does anybody have any suggestions for a photo paper to use as the bromide printer for carbro printing? I know Sandy King used Kodak Polycontrast III, but, since that is no longer available...
    What is needed is a paper with little or no super-coating. Does anybody make one?

    Contact Mirko at Fotoimpex. I think Forte made some paper with no super-coating and he had some of it for sale as late at the APUG conference last May when I spoke to him about it. John at JandC offered to get some of this for me to use as final support for carbon prints but events did not see this happen.

    The paper that David Lewis sells for bromoil does not have any super coating either, or at least I believe that is so.

    I personally quit making carbro prints some 8-10 years ago and now make only carbons.

    I suggest that you contact Mac McCowan in Idyllwild, California. He should be able to give you some advice.

    Thank you Sandy and Markus for the suggestions. I have contacted both Mirko and Mac.
