    Yes, here is a link to a decent image of what it looks like.

    I bought a single 2' x 4' sheet @ Lowes for ~ $11.00.

    I use paper towels so I don't have to worry about getting the paper I am humidifying wet and the screen further diffuses the moisture. You may get an 'egg crate' pattern if you don't do this.

    Why humidify them? It's not platinum paper we are making...

    At PE's class a couple of years ago we did not humidify the paper and we had no problems with the emulsion coming off paper. (Off the glass and film -yes, but not off the paper.)

    I forget which paper I liked best, but I think it was a cold pressed paper with a pretty smooth surface. I'm sure PE remember what we used.

    We used mostly Strathmore smooth hot press at 100# weight. We also used Velour and Watercolor. The Baryta was one of the other papers we coated on. None had to be humidified.

    I have not used Fabriano so please ignore my comments.

    The Fabriano uses a different chemical treatment than most Arches paper.
    This might be involved, but yes it should not normally be necessary.

    ... perhaps he uses it for other alt prints anyway?

    I would like to touch a sample of the Velour.
    Was it Hanemure or Hahnemuhle...

    Does anyone have a sample any size from a 1 cm square upwards they could spare?

    Plain or processed doesn't matter.

    It is not avail here and I would just like to see it up close.

    Thanks.

    That is not what I call 'egg crate'...

    I can find small versions here for draining glasses etc on.

    Thanks again for the link.

    I don't normally humidify my paper, I have for some alt processes, but if you have a piece of paper with a crease or buckle I think humidifying before coating might save the day. Also, coating one side of paper causes it to expand, and then contract on that side more than the uncoated side. Humidifying pretty much solves that problem.

    As I said, I don't as a normal routine, but the paper stayed flatter as it dried, and was flatter after fully dried.

    I hope Denise Ross sees this; she humidifies her paper sometimes. In fact I was thinking her when I wrote it.

    Some say Fabriano uses Aquapel as a size.

    Strathmore Baryta?

    Here is what you had said:

    Humm...
    The only paper you specified as being "Strathmore" was the "smooth hot press"...

    Perhaps if you had said:
    "We also used Strathmore Velour and Strathmore Watercolor"
    I would not have gone down the wrong path!

    Anyway, I will see if I can locate any Strathmore Velour.
