The reason that I want to try this is that ever since playing with Pt\Pd somewhat that I should be able to get an 'amazing' Dmax on this paper compared to the rougher surfaces of appers typicallysed in alt processes. I know people that do this prefer these papers and this look, but I want to try this out.

If I coat baryta papers with Pt\Pd, I wonder if I'll just end up with AZO?
That would be pretty funny.....

Craig uses Tween as a surfactant to allow the coating to penetrate. Without using it, he says that the coating is uneven. As I recall, the other important factor is temperature during the coating process. I believe that I have a copy of his book around here somewhere.
