    Re: Fomatone 532 II Nature experience?

    I know about Tetenal Photo sprays which could be another possibilty to bring some shine to the surface.
    I will order some 132 sheets to get an idea of the surface.
    Maybe there is not much to do.

    Some experiments have to begin next :-)
    I'm a bit confused now and have slowly to decide either buying my last roll of 532 or directly continueing with 131 or 132 instead.

    But reseller's selling out doesn't mean production stop, so there seems to be a chance to purchase further.
