    Two Questions 1-printing 1-paper

    My adventure this afternoon with POP got me thinking about my soon to be first experience with Pd. Should I expect a large dry down and expose based on that? I guess I am asking what dry down effect should I expect to see?

    Here is the dumb one-How do I know if my paper is sized? I will be using Platinotype and cranes kid finish. I Bought them long ago before this sight existed.

    So, I think the "greats" were true to their visions, once their visions no longer sucked. Ralph Barker 12/2004

    Mark,

    Yes you need to evaluate a dryed print for final (or next) exposure determination. Dry down is a factor for all papers in my experience. If you use the same paper you can determine the dry down factor for the paper just like you can silver gelatin. However a dry down factor isn't an absolute or constant predictor as some images may still need a littles less or a little more exposure. Unless of course you are printing from digital negatives.

    Yes those papers have sizing. Read Chapter 5 in Arentz's new book for paper info.

    Arentz uses Platinotype as his standard printing paper against which others are compared.

    Oaky thanks, but how do I know if a paper is sized or not?

    Mark,

    More or less all factory made papers are sized. I'm not sure about some of the Japanese papers.
