    Argyrotype paper?

    Does anyone have experience with different papers for argyrotypes?

    I've read Mike Ware's suggestions, and some of those papers are hard to find or incredibly expensive, so I thought I'd ask around to see what others have found, knowing that the paper is a particularly important part in this process.

    I believe Mike Ware mentions Aquapel internal sizing as something to look for...

    I do some on :
    Arches platine
    Cot 320
    Cappelades
    Arches cover
    BFK rives
    Similijapon
    Lot of japanese tissue.
    And it works.
    Cranes kid finish and cover.

    It does not work with lanaquarelle.
    Depending on the sizing of the paper , the tone will change from warm chocolate brown to neutral tone.

    Thanks, nze!

    I was hoping that Arches cover would work (in that beautiful cream color...)

    SHould add that like kallitype, argyrotype toned quite well in platinum , gold and palladium. don't miss to try them it really make the print look lie a platinum print.
    One of the advantage of the argyrotype sensitizer is that it works with more paper than does platinum/palladium. As I like paper I often use Kallitype or argyro to make toned print on special paper, instead of trying to make the paper work the sensitizer, I make the sensitizer work the paper.

    For a lower cost alternative, try Weston at this link: http://www.crane.com/business/weston...palladium.aspx

    Attached is a pdf list of papers published in The Chrysotype Manual - generally good for all iron-based work.

    Don't forget Rising Stonehenge. This paper works really well for most alt. processes.
