recreating that silver gelatin look?
I would like to take a couple of pics I took and try to recreate that silver gelatin look as a print. I have an Epson 3880. I have only printed on luster, glossy and metallic rc type paper but I dont know what type of paper to use to get that silver gelatin look.
The second question is more specific to the 3880 printer. Since I have only use paper w/ an average of 250 gsm I have used the auto feed on the printer. It seems most high quality paper is much heavier. Do I use the hand feed or the straight through feed on the printer?
Thanks for any help that anybody can give me

You will need specialized papers, Mike.
Try Harman Gloss FB AL or Harman Matte depending on your artistic vision: http://www.harman-inkjet.com/product...ta+Photo+Paper

Printing on such papers is most expensive. You would do well to learn all you can prior to purchasing and printing.
