I Printed on Ilford GOLD Fiber Silk and some More San Gabriel on the CANON PRO 1

Thanking my friend from Australia, The Art Of Women Photography for the generous gift of some Ilford Fine Art Papers.
Been very busy lately but I found some time to finally test on of the papers, Ilford GOLD Fiber Silk which I printed using the Paper’s ICC profile from Ilford on my CANON PRO-1 printer using OEM inks.
The results were stunning!
A perfectly neutral B&W print with amazing tonalities and smoothness!
I also went back to try some Red River San Gabriel 1.0 which I bought in rolls, on the PRO-1.
Suffered a couple of head strikes along the leading edge of the custom cut 8″x12″ paper.
Proceeded to print a larger image and I used a trick to help prevent this from happening again and used Prevent Abrasion setting in the driver.
Hope you like the results.

I use the Canson Baryta a lot – it is pretty much the same as the Ilford Gold Fiber Silk. It is an exceelent paper. Most seem to use it for black and white…but i actually use it only for color work. For black and white i use the Harman Gloss Baryta which is absolutely the closest to my darkroom fiber prints. It is exceptional…and with the Epson it has virtually no gloss differential and only has monor bronzing that can only be seen when viewing at crazy angles. It works a treat on color as well, but i do like the Canson satin surface for color a lot. The canson has gloss differential in white areas and it bothers me on black and white.

“at least it’s butchered”….that was funny. 😉 Ilford GALERIE Prestige Gold Fibre Silk Paper (11 x 17”, 25 Sheets is $64 at B&H

Todd Munro says:

I wonder if you could use touchup inks on those white spots. I still have a set of Marshall’s from my darkroom days.

Do you know Tecco Paper? They have cheap price for apparently good quality paper. I’m interested in buying them. Will you do maybe a video about it?

Guairenito says:

hi José, what do you mean when you say that you use “semi gloss paper type” if you are actually using the peper’s profile from the manufacturer?

Matthew White says:

suggestions for icc on my epson p800? man if you had that icc file.. wow Id love it

Art of Women Photography says:

Hi Jose, thats one of the paper’s i use and with the Gold mono silk both are great for black and white prints.
Here in Australia the price for the Gold fibre silk is $74.00 Aus for 13 x 19 25 sheet box and $143.00 Aus for the 50 sheet box.
The Gold mono silk is $78.00 Aus for 13 x 19 25 sheet box.
All Ilford paper’s are easy to get here.

Michael Attanasio says:

which printer produces the richest, creamyist prints? Regarding the model in B+W

Matthew White says:

Looks like ilford profiles are now available online
All those posts online about closing plus some old ilford sites not redirected to newer had me upset!!
Ilford paper might be some of the greatest value albiet subjective
I find the gold foil silk a wonderful heavy semi ish paper etc etc
Again your the best!!
Keep up the good work

David B Cossini says:

Hello Jose, Awesome prints, I have the same sample pack from Iloford have you tried and if so what do you think of the Mono Silk paper for black and white prints?

Robert Hoffman says:

Thanks for the video, Jose. Just tried the Harman Gloss Fine Art and have to say it is right up there with RR Palo Duro and Canson Platine Fiber Rag. The Harman has a beautiful F-type, silver-gelatin appearance, which is quite striking.
