    I have used Photographic Emulsion from Foma for some time. It was put on graphic 310 gr. paper and it worked OK... But then I tried to put i on 150 gr. 'normal' paper with a surface witch was quite smooth... Then everything went wrong. The emulsion 'cracked' and was 'running' off during fixing....(Tetenal fixer)....
    I think it is the paper.. too smooth perhaps....

    And then the question: what is the best paper to use with photographic emulsion, when you want to get a smooth surface....
