    Dave, I order directly from the States, I don't know any European dealer for the paper - would like to know if there's one...

    I think DickBlick (in the States) stocks it (you can buy single sheets, discounted at 10+ sheets...), I also found another retailer that sells it in 100-pack format for a little less, but I haven't used them before.

    Regards,
    Loris.

    In Europe you can order Masa paper from Schleiper in Belgium.

    One more thing, I haven't made Kallitypes in a great long while, but I and the experience that I would get good prints, in those days using arches watercolor or cranes, and then I'd get lots of prints with mottling. Somewhere I read that at that point the developer, in my case Rochelle Salts should be tossed. Indeed, using fresh developer gave me better richer, smoother prints. Richard Sullivan's Athenatype process is said to solve a lot of the problems that are inherent in the Kallitype process. Here's a demo:

    I had success with Rising Stonehenge for Kallitype printing. I also use it for carbon transfer printing. It's cheap, too.

    I have a question about Stonehenge paper - do you pretreat it with acid?

    I just received a fresh batch of it from B&S, and it gave a grainy, blotchy kallitype. I used the same procedure that gives beautiful results with Arches Platine and COT 320.

    Thanks,

    Mark

    Yes, for Pt/Pd I acidify with 3% oxalic acid for 5 min and drip dry.

    I've never had to pretreat Stonehenge in an acid bath but you can try it... or try putting a few drops of oxalic acid in the sensitizer before you coat.
