So yesterday I did the first part (30mins) of my five hour exam, I developed 8 photographs I had taken of the cello and chose to develop them on multigrade paper, which mean drying them on board with tape. So for my next lot of images I have order multigrade pearl rc paper to see if I like that if not ill just go back to db gloss as rc gloss doesn't give such good detail.

My friend was also in the darkroom too she was using paper so old that the person who owned it had now died of old age. She was doing reverse prints of photographs she had done with sand, and when finished and dried the yellowish paper looked quite good.

Thursday I am going to develop another 8 photographs and see how the other ones turned out.

Old paper can be fun... A friend gave me a box of Ilford paper from the early Sixties. It's not in terribly good condition, and is a bit fogged - but gives weird and wonderful prints on a good day...

Avoid early RC papers, though - I used them when they were new, and they were actually pretty awful... Corrent Ilford Multigrade (especially fibre based) is about as good as it gets for general work - though there are some interesting alternatives around.

A great find was Ag Photographic, in Birmingham - they specialise in film, chemicals and paper. A bigger variety than almost anyone else stocks. Worth a look at the website!
