I've got everything I need to finally give Van Dyke's a try, but I'm a little unsure on coating the paper. I've never coated paper before so this is all completely new to me. I've read so much conflicting advice on things to do, things not to do that I'm flat out confused :confused:. Just when I think I've got a good understanding of how to do it, I read something else and then I'm back to square one. I've got a Richeson 9010 brush and I'll be using Stonehenge paper and Photo Formulary's Van Dyke kit. My questions are: Does the brush need to be moistened before applying the sensitizer? Does the paper need to be moistened? Do I apply the sensitizer in a thin bead on the paper and then spread it out using the brush or should I dip the brush into the sensitizer and then spread it? Thanks for any and all help.
