paper - retouching question : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

a while back GAF made a photo paper that had an emulsion which was easily manipulated for retouching. it took to a blade, sandpaper and lead-dust really well for retouching and smoothing hot spots

can anyone suggest a paper that might have similar surface qualities? much thanks john

How about just a fiber portrait type paper, I would say Ektalure, but that's gone now too. Maybe Polymax Fine Art--C, or whatever it was that replaced Ektalure. I'm sure Luminous or Kentmere would probably have a good variety of papers with a tooth, or even tweed surfaces....
