    I used their Optalux. It'll wrinkle no matter what! If you prestrach it like watercolour artists do, be sure to dry it partly before taping it to support. It'll shrink so aggressively that 20x30 cm sheet will break 1,5 mm glass (I tried that), or it'll squeeze from under the tape and - wrinkle. It drives me mad! I still have that stuff, and I'll need to think of something to use it. Maybe use DaveC's idea to mount it to aluminum support. That's at least what I'll do next.

    Kallitype on Pictorico

    I've made kallittypes on Pictorico OHP. It coats quite well.

    Anyone know if OHP materials are archival? I don't see that as part of the design mission... but they could be by accident, as it were.

    Interesting. Wonder if you could coat it with liquid light and use it in camera. I assume you coated the side with the coating for holding ink?

    Paul,

    Please let us know how this works out for you. I haven't run across this paper. I have used Staedtler vellum and Bienfang Graphics 360 Translucent Marker Paper for pt/pd. Both are 100% rag papers but neither package states a weight. The Bienfang is heavier and is the one I use more often. I double coat these papers for a better D-max. I also slip a plastic mesh support under them to transfer from developer to clearing baths. The Bienfang flattens reasonably well in a press but I dry mount the prints I intend to mat

    Most of the time I print on Arches Platine but some prints I like better on vellum. It would be nice to find one that is a little stronger and would remain flatter after a trip through the press.
