    2 sheets ?

    thanks for all the help and suggestion so far !
    Yes that might work, but carefully inspect the resultant print for evidence of the paper fiber. Milk plex works the best for me.

    Ok I tried the paper, but it did have some texture and diffracted the light a bit. In the end I just moved the light (at a slight angle) further off, and I now I reach a 8 second delay for a good exposure, and that is a LOT more manageable. I won't dodge and burn, but I can control the exposure a little depending on the neg and I don't have to be 1/3s precise in my timing

    Thanks for all the help guys !
