ILFORD MULTIGRADE RC DELUXE PAPER is the 5th generation of the world's most popular range of black & white photo papers and uses the vary latest photo emulsion technology.
MultiGrade RC Deluxe Pearl paper is the perfect choice for beginners, students and darkroom pros delivering a full tonal range and exceptional image quality throughout its wide contrast range of grades 00-5.
It is now easier than ever to get stunning darkroom prints whether you are new to the darkroom and creating straight prints from your negatives, or are a more experienced printer looking for full creative control 👨🏽🎨
Additionally, these papers offer excellent toning properties for those who want to experiment (or indeed learn toning from scratch!)
PEARL refers to the finish: Pearl sits between Glossy and Matt and with extra durability. Enough of a shine to give the photo real life, but without the extreme reflection of ambient light that glossy can provide - and with stronger coating this makes Pearl perfect for hanging in areas with high foot traffic.

I recently learnt how to darkroom print (great fun!) and this was the paper they used, so I purchased some for future darkroom work. While I can't say that I have experimented with the full available range of darkroom papers, this paper was durable and very easy to handle. The pearl finish is perfect and subtle. The only reason that I have not given this paper 5 stars is because I am dubious about its performance for displaying art. If you just want to see how the image looks printed and add it to a portfolio box then this paper is perfect. However, if I wanted to make a darkroom print and get it framed for display, I think there are probably more premium papers that could be used. Nonetheless, great darkroom paper that I'll continue to use.
I prefer the pearl finish to the gloss unless I'm doing portrait work really. But in either case a great all-rounder.
This paper is versatile and has lots of latitude for a good dynamic range. I seem to get good contrast across the prints with this

Nice matte finish paper, usual ilford quality, although worth bearing in mind the matt finish will reduce the brightness of the print compared to gloss
