My first ry at salt printing has ended with a streaked blotchy mess. As near as I can tell I didn't get an adequate coating of the salt compound i.e. there is an overall image but some areas are a deep brown and loo good but the rest are a very weak milky tan. I assume is the milky tan is just the sensitizer without the salt. I am using arches platine and applied the salt (ammonium chloride and sodium citrate)with an acrylic rod as I did the sensitizer and the coating looked even. I did however have a lot of trouble with trying to get it even. Should I switch to a brush for the salt? double coat one or both salt and sensitizer? Put extra sizing on the paper?
