Arches Platine

Arches produce a paper designed specifically for platinum printing which was introduced to the market in 1992.

Made on cylinder molds, it features a watermark at the bottom right and all four edges in raw wire. It has double sizing not in gelatin (internal and external) which allows it to be used on both sides, but for practical use it is advisable to use only on the smoother side that is easily identifiable to the touch.

It allows a simple and uniform application of the sensitizer. It has no alkaline buffer. Always warm tones. The single original size of the 56x76 sheets (called Imperial format) always requires cutting operations for use in smaller formats.

The cut to size is made by LabOldTech.

No one can do a good job without proper tools, and the chemicals can be defined, the tools of the photographer. This is the weak point of many operators. They work with economic and inferior chemicals, and many do not know the true composition; not to mention unwanted interferences that can be created between them.
“Chemicals are the tools of art photographers. Through a deep knowledge of photo chemistry the artist can reach and master the art photography level.”
