    Going thru my papers and realized I still have some from a B&S sample pack. Includes a sheet of Kozo light & heavy. Read somewhere that Kozo soaks up the sensitizer, and extra water should be added to the pt/pd solution. Any experience here? Also it has a rough & a smooth side - presume should print on the smooth?

    Dave I've done a little printng on it and scanning them in is a bit of a futile effort.
    The quality gets completely lost and it doesn't really look unique in the least in a scan. The paper itself has a very strong characteristic.

    The prints on it can be astounding though. I have a very large print of Clay Harmon's and it is a perfect image. The paper, the process, the subject all work wonderfully in concert and create a sum far greater than the individual components.

    ... as all photography processes, papers, tools etc should do when utilized by each of us.


    I highly recommend you try to seek out someone close by that can show you some examples in the flesh.

    None more black.

    Here is a link to some Van Dyke Brown prints on Kozo. I don't know if it is like the paper B&S sells. The scans are large enough to get a good idea of how the paper and image work together.

    The thin stuff I have does not have the lines running through it. It sounds like the Gampi I have used in the past in that respect. With Gampi, the lines will not show after it dries as long as you don't try to light it from the back or something. I can't really say about this Kozo, because apparently I have a different version. But I did get it from Bostick and Sullivan.
    I just want to feel nostalgic like I used to.
