    Storing paper coated with salt print and ziatype emulsions

    Dear APUGers,

    I'm wondering if it's OK to store paper pre-coated with ziatype or salt print emulsions? I'm thinking it would be efficient if I coated a bunch a day or a week ahead before printing. Will these emulsions fog I store them longer than a month let's say?
    Thanks in advance!

    I don't know what a ziatype emulsion is, but a coated salt print should keep if kept in the dark.

    I've made salted paper and then did not use it all that day. It was fogged after a few weeks of stting in the box. Ziatype needs humidity so I'm not sure waht that work around would be. I use a workflow with Ziatype that involves only coating one sheet at a time so that it all has similar humidity within the paper. I get really consistent sensitivity this way. YMMV

    Best
