Anyone have suggestions for 8x10 fiber mattes...the only papers that come to mind right now is Arista.edu and Ilford MGIV. I might just go ahead and try Ilford, it seems like a safe bet.
Be sure to give the Adorama VC Fiber Matte a whirl. It's a neutral base with a warm tone emulsion, very slow, and just a hint of luster on the surface, like a Paul Strand print. I made BTZS curves on this paper and it has a very consistent response through all the grades. It's good stuff and very inexpensive. If you run a search on it you'll find more info.
