    I believe our resident Bromoil maestro (Gene Laughter) uses Kentmere Finegrain VC warmtone. There is a special Bromoil paper sold by Fotoimpex.

    Another paper that has recently emerged is the Foma Fomabrom Variant 123, which is a semimatte and grainy surface much reminiscent to the old Agfa MCC 118. It is supposed to work very well with Bromoil; this is according to Freestyle and Foma. I haven't seen anybody actually use it yet.

    Kentmere Finegrain WT is being discontinued by Ilford, so I would probably avoid that paper if you wish to make bromoil prints for a good long while and have consistent results.

    Don't know about Variotone, but I believe the Nuance is the same paper as Fotokemika Emaks, a paper I have never heard mentioned in bromoil discussions. But I thought the fact that they are one and the same might help your question, perhaps.

    from Silverprint's page: "..Thanks to experiments by alternative process expert Terry King we're pleased to somewhat belatedly announce that FOMA 532 (Nature) and 542 (Chamois) work beautifully with Bromoil, either directly, or with transfer..."


    I fortunately use LE for my bromoils, so I don't have a problem.....

    Emil, are those the old 532 and 542? Or the new 532-II or 542-II. The surface is completely different between the two, and the 532 and 542 have been discontinued. The 532-II and 542-II are in production.
