New Hahnemühle Platinum Rag Paper
I am very excited because there is a new paper for platinum printing.
If you have never tried platinum printing, then this is something you should try at least a few times.
I ordered a box of 25 8"x10" sheets and my plan is to create the prints and share my experience with my readers. I will be sending some exclusive information to my newsletter subscribers.
I have included some information below from the manufacturer:
Hahnemühle Platinum Rag is an uncoated fine art paper. It is designed to meet the highest quality requirements for platinum printing and any other non-traditional photographic printing processes like Palladium, Van Dyke, Cyanotype and Salt Prints. The natural bright white paper with a weight of 300 gsm is made of 100% cotton fibers. It is acid-free and does not contain any alkaline buffering. Along with the optimized sizing, the paper allows for easy coating and clearing.
Hahnemühle Platinum Rag excels with a beautiful tonal range and very deep blacks. The smooth, slightly textured surface lends the paper a pleasant feel-to-the-touch. Both sides have a very good print quality without any noticeable difference while printing both the front and the back.
I will follow up with a new article as soon as I make some platinum prints. I will be using my 8x10 view camera with HP5+ sheet film. I plan to develop negatives with D76 and with Pyro HD to compare results and determine which developer I like best for making platinum prints on this specific paper. Stay tuned!
