    Matte. I never use glossy for bromoil. Either semi-matte or matte.

    Here is perhaps the only(?) dedicated bromoil paper out there. Also good for carbro... http://www.bromoil.com/products-supplies.html

    Gene, do you have any idea whether the Slavich would be suitable for carbro? It seems like if it's suitable for bromoil, it must not have the gelatin super-coat.

    Any tips on using the Fomabrom, do you us a soft or hard ink. I found the Fomabrom 112 quite hard to use when doing a workshop.
