New York City, NY—Canson expanded its paper line with Canson Infinity Baryta Photographique II Matt paper. It has an extremely smooth surface with a totally matt finish. Moreover, due to the lack of grain interference, the paper accentuates the detail in printed images. In addition, the matt surface has no light reflection from any viewing angle. Consequently, the paper is ideal for photographers or artists.
“The next generation of Baryta Photographique, it offers photographers and printers the opportunity of creating a photograph with the true look and feel of a traditional darkroom print with improved handling and finishing characteristics,” the company announced.
Baryta Photographique II Matt
Although Baryta Photographique II Matt is classified as a digital darkroom photo paper, printmakers should use matt black ink as opposed to photo black ink. The paper boasts an extremely high D-Max, or black density, equivalent to that of a digital fine art matt paper. As a result, it offers contrast and depth, as well as intense colors.
Furthermore, the paper has the same barium sulphate layer (baryta) as Baryta Photographique II. However, it benefits from the improved handling introduced in the second generation of this digital darkroom paper. Baryta Photographique II Matt is made on a traditional photographic alpha-cellulose base that adds to the authentic feel of a darkroom paper.
Moreover, the paper comes in a variety of sheet sizes and rolls, including 5×7-, 8.5×11-, 11×17-, 13×19- and 17×22-inch sheets. It is also available in 50-foot rolls in the following sizes: 17, 24, 36, 44, 50 and 60 inches.
Canson Infinity is the brand name of digital fine art and photo paper crafted in the Canson mill in Annonay, France. With more than 450 years of experience, Canson offers museum-quality fine art and photo inkjet papers plus canvas.
