    hi guys i did a quick search and couldnt come up with an answer.

    i'm looking for a paper for doing kallitypes, cyanotypes and gum on that has a brownish tint to it. how brown is fabriano number 5?

    i'm looking for something like the botton few frames in this picture:

    or something a tiny bit lighter than this paper:

    i know this has been an incredibly rambling topic but i just thought some of you may be able to help.

    also is there any free resources online to teach you how to bind books?

    thanks

    just had a look and that looks like the stuff i need, do you know if its available in hot press? as i just went down to my local arts shop and they had some but it was quite rough like it was np.

    p.s. just realised probably should have put a nsfw for the second image i didnt think it would be included in the post itself i thought it would be a link!

    If you want warm images consider doing palladium...I'm currently doing palladium on Fabriano Artistico 140HP developed in my regular paltinum developer and getting very nice warm tones...
    Best, Peter

    How about doing a light tea-toning to brown up the paper?

    There are two weights available, but I've only seen it in a very smooth surface that looks like hot press. Are you sure you were looking at Stonehenge?
