After trying some palladium printing for the first time, I noticed that the paper gets pretty weak pretty fast. I tore a couple of corners off at first (which luckily didn't affect the picture, as it was centered in the middle with a large border), before being a little more careful.

Do the chemicals in developing and clearing pd prints attack and weaken the paper somehow, or is it simply a matter of a flimsy paper spending a while in liquids that makes it want to fall apart? I did soak a quite heavier paper in water for a couple of hours once hoping it would bleed out an overexposed cyanotype, and didn't notice it weakening.
