I haven't tried this yet, but it is top on my list of things I want to do. I have both editions of Baker and have Wall's book, too, and have been collecting equipment. I thought I was close to having everything I needed, but then found out my plate holder won't fit the camera. So it's back to the wood shop to make a new back.
Keep the stuff coming.
Wow that is a fascinating and inspiring article. Some of the characteristics of the paper sound like the Dasonville paper.

Would it be possible to make a paper with a long scale such as grade 2 Azo or a genuine grade 4 with repeatable results?
I'm in total agreement with you Don. Papers like Ektalure are irreplaceable.

Designing emulsions for silver gelatin are certainly more complex than most of us have the training and experience for.
Thanks to Ron for trying to keep this alive.
Yes, I have done that!

Also, if you use the varioius art papers out there, surfaces are as broad as the paper choices.
