I 've been playing with Nelson gold toner and Ilford Warmtone FB paper. I know it's a PITA--10 minutes at 110 degrees F with constant agitation gets old. But I absolutely love the way the prints look. After I started using the toner, I read that this was part of Paul Strand's normal process. Maybe I'm onto something here.

I've bought up a wide selection of warm tone papers to try out. I've never used any of them before so it's all new to me. Has anyone here used any of these warmtone variable contrast papers with with Nelson gold: Bergger (both the ivory and the regular base), Cachet, Forte (ivory and regular), Flexicon and Oriental?

If you have any experience with these papers in Nelson gold, give me some opinions. My print developers are Dektol and LPD. The LPD is usually diluted 1:4 or 1:3.
