While I've decided I probably don't want a ferrotype gloss on my prints, I am curious about how to get it working. I've read pretty much everything on every forum for tips (that I can find), and here's my experience: I have an almost unused Premier Print Dryer, the 'flippy' model. It sat in a box in a basement for 15 years and as far as I know, was only used a few times. The plates appear to be pristine, from what I can tell. I haven't had any problem with my fibre prints sticking to the plate, but no matter what I try, it leaves a 'mottled' appearance on the surface of my print. I've been gently cleaning the surface with some pure glycerin-based soap, then rinsing it with filtered water. As per some advice on the forums, I've tried rubbing a drop or two of glycerin on the plate with a soft cloth, but have also tried without glycerin. After rinsing my print, I squeegee the emulsion side once on a clean surface, then place it face down on the plate, then squeegee the back side of the print to the plate several times to make sure it has good contact. I've tried low heat settings and high heat settings. I always wait until the print is completely dry and released from the plate. No matter what I try, I get this irregular patchy appearance on it. Any tips? Secondly, how do you clean the canvas?? I don't see any obvious way to remove it. There are a total of 4 large philips screws, one in each corner, but I'm not certain if I'm supposed to undo them in order to clean it. The canvas is probably clean for now, but I know that I should probably wash it once in a while to be certain there's no chemistry on it, even though I'm pretty careful. If I dry the fiber paper face-up, I still get a very flat print (which is my primary goal, rather than the extra gloss) but that makes me paranoid about chemistry getting on it. Thanks! Is it worth even attempting to dry RC prints on it (face up, on low temperature)? So far, ironically, my experience has given me curled prints that are not-quite-dry. I assume the water vapour can't penetrate the plastic surface of the print.
