    I recall an article with a gentleman who was doing Platinum printing on a japanese rice or similar paper...his technique for the process was included in the article...does anyone here recall what issue it was in?? I found a really nice paper but seems to need special handling...would love to reference the article...
    thanks, Peter

    I remember that article. I will see if I saved that issue, Peter. I think he was using fiberglass window screening mesh material, but I could be wrong.

    It's possible that the paper may need sizing. You could experiment with treating it with spray starch. Also temperature and humidity might be an issue.

    Ron Reeder had an article in the mag, but I can't lay my hands on it ( see Pigment Platinum)

    2-3 years ago there was an exhibit at a local college here of a SCAD grad's platinum prints on Japanese mulberry paper. They were very delicate & transparent. He used bookbinder tape to mount. Unfortunately, I wasn't doing pt/pd at that time so didn't ask the important questions.

    article

    I'll take any and all opinions but it would be nice to reference the article...I have it somewhere myself...neal you are probably the closest to the article in that he might have used fiberglass screens...but wouldn't the paper float off the surface....the paper does not need sizing it works just fine...
    thanks, Peter

    I remember the article and he used a carrier of some sort. I thought it was a piece of plexiglass, but it would seem to me that fiberglass screen might work better. Another alternative is ClearPrint Vellum. I've used it a few times and it has a nice translucent look to it and is pretty robust through processing. The paper is white which may or may not work with what you are doing. It really looks great with cyanotype, though!

    I have used fiberglass window pane screens that I've constructed (just get one big one and cut it apart or build from scratch) small ones that I can put prints between when using very fragile paper. Additionally, I have taped my paper to plexigass through the entire process and ran it through that way.
    Let's see what I've got in the magic trash can for Mateo!

    I think the article you're referring to was by Davidjohn Lotto in the Jan-Feb 2005 issue. He printed Pt on handmade Gampi paper.
    Hope this helps.
