    Contact Printing/VC paper?

    Does anybody make contact prints using VC paper and a color head?

    Thank you,

    I also use VC papers occasionally for contact printing - Forte Polywarmtone using an Ilford MG head. However this paper seems prone to Newton's rings interference pattern noticeable in even tone areas like the sky. I've not yet tried other VC papers yet to see if these patterns appear.

    Using graded papers (Galerie) and the same set up these patterns do not manifest themselves.

    I had that problem with Polywarmtone as well, until I switched to the bad etched "anti glare" glass in my contact frame.

    i found with my 8x20's I use Qriental Seagul and a Zone VI enlarger. I have also used my Azo enlarging light on my Bessller 45 (SP) with graded paper of the same make. I think it takes a little longer to learn over enlarging. I use a B&S contact frame just like I use for my AZO and PD/PL printing.
    I thought Forte is out of buisness?

    Interesting, I was just planning on doing this for the first time with Foma papers.
