Got my roll of Hahnemule Photo Rag Baryta today. Ilford Fiber Gold Silk can't hold a candle to the Hahnemule. Ilford Gold Silk doesn't even look like baryta, or smell like it. Feels like plastic. The Hahnemule roll really had a strong, old-school baryta smell. Looks and feels like classic double fiber weight silver gelatin. I've only made a couple of images thus far, but my client was very pleased, as was I.
Great looking paper, but at about double the price I pay for canvas, the price is still a little rich for my blood. If Hahnemule could find a way to bring the price down about 30% I think I would throw out all my HP ID Satin and change to my photo paper printing to exclusively Hahn Photo Rag Baryta and nothing else. As it is, I'll have a little on hand for the customer's that are willing to pay, and occasionally print a few of my images on it.
Thanks for the recommendations. Really worked out well.
