Doing my prints in the dark room and talking to people and looking at reviews and information about resin coated and fibre based paper I have a much of a great idea of what I think of the difference between resin coated and fibre based paper.
Resin coated paper is a faster proses you aim would be to print the top layer of by doing a contact sheet then once you begin the proses everything slowly starts to fall in to place one this I have to say about resin paper is that it doesn’t give the image a rich look with the colour tone where as looking at the results of fibre based paper the quality is much more stronger and the black tones are greater and stand out much more than the resin coated paper.
Resin coated paper has three different stages which is stop development then it fixes the images so everything will be fixed so what you printed on the paper will begin to show as printed then the last proses would be the wash where all the liquid that has been used will wash everything of in order for you to use the image. It is important that all three processing tasks are done in order for you image to have a great finish result to it.
Over all I am happy using the resin coated paper as it is simpler and easy and alongside that it is much faster and will not take time to dry or need special but with fibre based paper it will need a lot long to dry and make sure all the water has come out which could take few days and also making sure the paper is a in a suitable place where it could be dried easily without any issue’s.
