    Thanks Kerik for the clarification, some one else took notes for me and I am having trouble deciphering, I was sure it would be everclear.

    On advice from Clay, when working with vellum paper tape it down and coat the entire sheet. This greatly helps with the "potato chip curl" that it gets when you're coating it.

    Thanks for the alternative to Bienfang Kerik.

    I love the look but you are right, it is a royal pain in the bottom when it is wet....very fragile.

    It is however, a darn good paper for cyanotype, salted paper, van dyke brown, kallitype and pt/pd. In workshops I find that students are able to coat Bienfang right off the hop much better than just about any paper.

    I will look into the others that you mentioned.

    Also, the Clearprint comes in a heavier weight (Clearprint 1020) than the standard stuff you'll find in most art stores with is Clearprint 1000. It's even better for Big prints. It can be bought online in rolls for very cheap.

    When dealing with platinum the periodic table of the elements has it at Pt. There is no Pl. Palladium is designated as you have it, Pd. The closest to Pl on the table these days is Pm which is Promethium.

    When dealing with labelling the process Pt/Pd will tell all what elements you are talking about.
