    Best Paper F or Liquid Emulsion? Newbe to Paper Negatives.

    Hello,
    This is my first question on this Forum. I am an active participant on the Silver Gelatin Forum. I make my own liquid emulsions, with which I make glass plate negatives. I want to try some negative emulsions on paper, in camera. What paper would you recommend?

    hi bill

    i have used a handful of different papers for in camera negatives,
    and i find that a thin, cold pressed ( smooth no tooth ) paper works
    best. i have used water color and hand made papers and velums
    but they tend to have a texture in the negative which can be distracting ...
    i recently got a bunch of paper i have been using ID'd because when i run out
    i want to get a bunch more ... it was gifted to me, and i have been using it for years
    clueless but happy it worked for liquid emulsion as well as cyanotypes
    i found out it is like white butcher paper ... smooth and " waxy " if you can find some
    grab it ! it works great

    have fun !

    ps. i think you will find coating paper to be 100 times easier than coating glass
    silver magnets, trickle tanks sold
    artwork often times sold for charity
    PM me for details
