I haven't tried Fomatone, nor have I tried anything else from J&C. Since I live in Norway, it is easier to order from Germany. Some of the J&C products are also available here, like the Foma papers.

At present I'm trying Bergger, Forte and Maco papers, as well as some Kentmere, Oriental and Ilford paper I've had for a while. I think that's enough...

The Bergger Art Contact is fixed grade, but responds very well to chemical trickery. I have no difficulties getting good results from grade 1 through 4 by changing the exposure and/or the developer.

It took me 25 sheets to master this - if one needs 200 sheets to master Azo, I think I'll stick to Bergger...
