Initial Test of Adox Baryta Paper for Coating with Silver Gelatin Emulsion

December 17, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

In this video, I perform a simple test on the Adox Fine Art Baryta paper to see how it will respond to being coated with a silver gelatin emulsion.  My hope is that it will work as the substrate for my 8x10 large format paper negatives.  

I also show some of the tools required to coat your own papers and negatives and discuss some of the variables.

The next step is to review how the full sheet of paper responds to the coating and then make a decision if I want to coat it and really test it or not.  I will write a new post with some follow-up information next.

I look forward to your comments and discussion below.
