Also, how easy is it to make handcoated FB glossy paper?

Many thanks,

Lachlan, the velvet warmtone is possible. The Strathmore Velour is similar to a velvet surface without baryta and imparts a warm tone. Using a warm toned emulsion (I have made one) and/or a warmtone developer, you can get quite nice results.

Coating on FB Baryta glossy paper will yield a glossy print. The yield is lower than other papers due to apparent defects in the paper and defects due to the nature of the baryta itself. It is a more expensive paper, but gives good quality prints.
