    I have used the Weston parchment paper with several of the iron based processes and strongly recommend it. For the money there is nothing out there that works as well.

    There are two issues. First, the Weston paper does not have a lot of wet strengh, so you will have to treat it very carefully in processing. And second, the color is very warm. If you are looking for a really white surface you will not like the Weston. But I like the look a lot.

    If money is no obstacle, and you like a really white surface, it is impossible to beat COP 320. Or is tht 302?

    Hi Sandy, it's Bergger COT 320. I'm also using Weston paper and like it a lot too. It didn't gave me troubles up to 11x14" size - but I was printing on 77gsm Japanese paper lately, so I'm quite used to work with thin / weak papers.

    Regards,
    Loris.

    I Would like to try the Weston paper for cyanos. Where can I purchase some individual sheets? I ran a quick search on google and could only find it in fifty sheet packages. Perhaps I could purchase some off of one of you?

    I use Canson Drawing paper. Well I use the BACK of the paper. 180gsm, can take a lot of wet processing, and is very, very, very cheap. A4 Gummed Pad, 30 sheets : £3.35. Beat that !

    From the seller "artyfolks" on eBay:
    Canson pure white drawing paper with a soft texture, 100% acid-free, made from pure cellulose with no wood fibres. Both the pulp and surface are sized, making it very durable and able to resist multiple erasures. Slightly heavier weight at 180gsm than the Canson Sketching Pads.

    This Canson Drawing Pad is gummed, 180gsm (85lbs) and with 30 sheets per pad.
    (No link to said seller, just a happy customer)
