    I'm looking for a translucent paper for Zia printing, and this paper is what Kevin Sullivan suggested me. Has anybody used this paper? What are your experiences with it?

    I received a pack of above paper on friday, and went experimenting. Zia with a bit of Tween 20 work nicely, but watch out this is one fragile paper! I have to fine tune my processing before going to full scale prints. But never the less. Because paper is translucent it is interesting how prints on this paper respond to background colour. Print can be cool as a steel, or really warm. Will certainly play more with it.
