New Hahnemühle Platinum Rag Paper by Tim LaytonNew Hahnemühle Platinum Rag Paper by Tim Layton 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:

Free Analog Photography Journal by Tim LaytonFree Analog Photography Journal by Tim Layton 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.

  • 100% cotton, 300 gsm
  • Smooth, subtle textured surface
  • Natural bright white
  • Without optical brighteners
  • Acid-free
  • Free of alkaline buffering
  • Optimized sizing for easy handling
  • Beautiful tonal range and very deep blacks

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!
