    This paper is probably one of the best Ilford makes. A friend and I are testing it against Oriental warmtone. In comparison, the Ilford paper is much cooler. It handles contrast well and is fairly easy to print (easier than the Oriental). I have no real complaints. As far as warmtone paper goes, it really just depends on how warm you want it. This one isn't the warmest, but I still love the paper.

    Not so hot.

    I expected more richness from this paper but I found it rather flat.

            Comments about Ilford Multigrade FB Warmtone Fiber Base Paper (11 x 14', 50 Sheets, Glossy):

            After experiencing a number of papers, first, RC glossy, to start my deleveloping career...to shiny and for the beginner. Next...RC Pearl...getting closer to a softer feel, then FB Warmtone Semi-matte.

            WOW! what a difference. I use RC only to pump out photos from my negatives to see what I want to archive on fiber. I have produced bad negatives into great pictures on this paper. FB warmtone, whether, glossy or matte, the only ones I used, produce great contrast and tones. These tones pull you to the picture!

            If you want artistic, beautiful pictures...then this is the paper to use!

              This is my favorite fiber paper. I love the contrast, how thick the paper is and the warm tone. I am making contact prints of my digital images and silver paper is giving me a result that I can not get with an inkjet printer

                I started using this paper by mistake; since then I was not been able to let it go. The pictures came out in rich values, making them look better that what you will expect.

                                  I'm using this paper for my final portfolio in my photography class. This size paper and warmtone texture allows my photo to take life it could achieve on 8x10 RC paper. Don't get mr wrong, RC paper is great. But for a final portfolio this is the paper to buy! It is a bit more time consuming to print on 11x14 paper, but the end product is worth it!

                                    I use this enlarging 6 x 6 negatives, very good tones. Imo the glossy looks leaps and bounds better than the flat. the warm tone is noticeable but not too overpowering. for a more pronounced effect developing with a warm tone paper developer will allow you to achieve a warmer tone.

                                          I use MGFBWT with Dektol or Ilford Mutligrade. Great tonal range and easy to work with.

                                              This has a fantastic tonal range. It would be perfect if it weren't quite so glossy--if your photos have large areas of black in them, the black areas reflect quite a bit making them hard to view under some circumstances. If your photos don't have a lot of black, there's nothing bad to say about this paper and it's beautiful for that sort of print.

                                              switched over from arista. the difference is amazing. it might be in my head, but i think the exposure times are longer than arista. not a big deal though. my prints look great. you might want to get some warmtone spotter with this paper.

                                                I use this paper with Kodak Selenium Toner and I'm always able to create rich, tonal prints.

                                                  I am a fine art photography student who use this paper to print from my 6x7 and 4x5 negatives. This paper is my favorite warmtone paper in that it is extremely reliable and it isn't too warm, which I prefer. It handles its contrast well and it is easy to use without too much experimentation.

                                                      I expected more richness from this paper but I found it rather flat.

I love Illford products number one, they have always been the best and I don't buy any other brand. If you like working in a darkroom, and like warmtone images, you will love this product!
