It has a cool paper base with a warm image tone and differs from Ilford FB baryta-based papers by exhibiting shorter final wash times and easier handling due to its 300gsm weight.

Produced for Harman technology by Hahnemule FineArt GmbH.
Fully compatible with all existing Multigrade filters and equipment. It is suitable for printing from conventional black and white negatives and XP2 Super negatives.

Multigrade Art 300 Paper (8 x 10", 50 Sheets) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favourite Paper I have been using Ilford FB and Warmtone papers and gave this new paper a try. It produces beautiful prints with real warmth and depth. I find it great for portraits, in particular. Once dry, the paper is easier to flatten than FB and has a beautiful, subtly textured surface that avoids strong reflections. It is more delicate that FB paper when wet but is less prone to creasing. It is more buoyant in water due to its lower density that FB, however the Art300 paper is thicker and feel high quality. I am now looking forward to trying larger sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ilford Multigrad Art 300 paper I print digital negatives with curves developed for this paper in a printing frame under the enlarger. You must run this paper through the processes one sheet at a time. I start in the developer face down and then turn over to make sure the face is equally wet. Continue agitating the tray for the development time. Move to stop bath face down. Put into fixer face down and agitate for one full minute. Move to a quick water bath, then into a hypo clearing agent for 4 minutes. Then another quick wash and into the print washer for 30 minutes. If you try to do too much at once or don't keep this paper face down you may get brown spots. If you follow these instructions you won't. Doing multiple prints to save time can make a real mess! Final results are beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best BG&W photopaper I've ever used Provides beautiful warm highlights. Great contrast range, able to hold detail in dense areas while still showing great highlights. I have used it for 2nd pass lith printing as well as traditional B&W. This paper has caused me to reprint significant portion fo my portfolio. I especially like it for old barns, churches where texture and warm tone add to overall feel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this again and recommend it! I love this paper by Ilford. It has a very textured surface, almost like watercolor paper giving it a very artistic look. Since I hand color a lot of my prints, this paper is pretty much one of only ones left that works for hand coloring. Everything else I have used in the past has been discontinued. And other fiber papers on the market including other Ilford papers just don't work for coloring because they just suck up the paint and you can't move it around, Most of my customers love this paper, but there always some that prefer the other ones that aren't textured. ANyway, I'm glad I discovered this paper!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful tactile alternative. So I think I have a new paper love: Ilford multigrade 300 Art. It is a 100% cotton rag paper, and while I don't know that I'd go so far as to say it's like a cold press, it certainly feels like it belongs to the watercolor family. It has a very prominent, elegant tooth to it that has a fiberous quality that is almost felt-like with a beautiful eggshell sheen. Most mat finishes lack the ability to produce dense, inky blacks due to the scattering effect (causing blacks to render more chalky/charcoaly), but even though the texture of this paper is not a gloss, surprisingly rich blacks are attainable. It has a beautiful, long toned emulsion without a baryta base that somehow makes it feel more integrated to the paper base. The base is slightly warm, but the emulsion is beautifully neutral... Not like that greenish cast you get with Ilford's MGIV. It almost looks gold toned right out of the box. Also, another surprising thing given the prominence of the tooth of this paper is it's resolving power. I printed TMZ 3200 in Rodinal on it at a size less than 8x10 and the grain was still sharply articulated, meaning it wasn't swallowed up in surface texture. In fact it really integrated quite well. I didn't tone or bleach because I wanted to see how it dried down, and I am so happy with it that the only reason I would do either is to see how it would handle it. I don't think these prints need either process. So I has a nice refined look that is somewhat romantic, but will work just as well with modern graphic approaches as well. I kinda love this stuff and see myself using it quite a bit. If you print in a darkroom I highly recommend picking some up, or even requesting it from a custom lab for exhibition prints. I doubt anyone would regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent paper I hoped that Ilford Art 300 would be a suitable replacement for the last of my Art Document paper which is now about finished. It is twice as heavy, with great D-Max and wonderful overall tonality. Perhaps heavier than necessary, but it exudes quality. If you want textured paper, then you can't go wrong with this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely This paper turned out to be quite a beautiful experiment. I was unsure about trying it out but was convinced by a fellow photographer and am extremely happy I did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Art 300 B&W paper from Ilford One of the BEST B&W papers that I've ever worked with. Beautiful results, especially when printing from ilford SFX. Will use again, and again!
