    Impulse Paper Purchase

    Ebay strikes again. More like my ignorance!!

    Purchased a roll 10 in x 250 ft of Ilford Paper as follows (from box):

    Ilford Multigrade RC Express Glossy

    width 25.4 cm, Length 74 m Winding (Cinch wound)

    I think this paper was designed to go into print machine. From what I can gather at Ilford it is made for "fast exposure".


    -Can I hand expose/develop this material?
    -What kind of safe light?
    -What kind of developer?

    Basically I bought this so I could do all my newbie mistakes on some cheap paper.

    Did I just create more problems for myself?

    I have not opened the box yet. What can I expect? A roll in black plastic so I CAN open the box, or should I do that in total darkness....? Probably an obvious answer to that.

    Would this type of paper be more sensitive to light than regular paper?

    I had in mind to put the roll next to a paper cutter and pull off 8" lengths, cut etc to create 8x10 sheets. I would get 375 sheets out of the roll.

    Would I also have curling because the paper is on a roll?

    Any help and advice on what I have on my hands would be great!

    Never mind. I found the Ilford Tech info.
    Looks useful.
    30 cents a 8x10 sheet.
