Ilford Multigrade Art 300

For those still printing B+W on proper silver halide paper: a (belated) review of one of the best and most fascinating papers you can get.

Cheers,

R.

Thanks Roger. Finding the right paper is a huge deal in the whole workflow. Sadly I am limited to scanning and inkjet printing at present but even with these limitations, paper has a crucial effect on the outcome. I was a warmtone kind of guy and multigrade warmtone in Tetenal developer was my thing. It is a look that I try and replicate with inkjet and I have come close with Ilford Galerie Prestige Mono Silk. Seeing your review has made me nostalgic for setting up a darkroom again when circumstances permit.
Regards,
John.

Nicely written Roger! I have been using quite a bit of it and the rugged look and sparkle makes the Art 300 stands out. Not to mention it dries flatter than other fiber based papers.

Looks promising with MG and shorter washing times.

Any idea on how it responds to Selenium toning?

Dear Jake,

Frances says, "Very well, but keep wet time to the minimum possible." It is after all a 100% rag paper , so it soaks up water like a (very slow) sponge.

Hope this helps,

Cheers,

R.
