                I am in love with this paper. I had never used warmtone before, and now I am a big fan. I used the paper to print portraits, and the warmtone and gloss worked really well for the skin tones and my high contrast style of printing.

                  Beautiful warm tone. Thick and creamy. Only downside: paper slightly more than 14" so there's an issue putting it in the easel.

                        Great for Lith Printing process.

                        Also a very nice general purpose warmtone paper.

                        Responds to toners beautifully.

                        The base is quite cream in colour, which isn't everbody's thing

                              I'm using this paper for my 4x5 view camera class and the images come out creamy and beautiful! My teacher recommend it to me and now I don't want to ever go back to regular black and white.

                              Comments about Oriental Seagull VCFBW DW Warmtone 11x14/50 Smooth Glossy:

                              Developed in Ethol LPD 1:4, I found this paper to be a little flat. The base is a slight cream color, which gave the image a slight yellowish tint. However, toning for 3 min in selenium toner 1:4 converted it to lovely brown tones and deepened the blacks. Once selenium toned, I love this paper.

                                  The warm tone is a different paper than your typical warm black tone papers like the late Agfa Portriga. The contrast is low and the whole paper looks like it has been sepia toned. Once you get used to this, the paper works beautifully.

                                        Comments about Oriental Seagull VCFBW DW Warmtone 11x14/50 Smooth Glossy:

                                        I use this for all of my landscape work generally with Ilford multigrade developer but often with Ethol LPD and occasionally Dektol. I like the Ethol Lpd best in dilutions of 1:2 thru 1:4 and this is my preferred fine print developer.

                                        The result is very deep D-max in a rich dark brown/black with quite creamy highlights. It likes full exposure and full development.

                                        Downside is lack of consistency in manufacture - occasional 'bad' batches but I have found B&H ready to replace these so, in the end, it's not a big problem for me.
