Neeeeeeckk....wrong answer. After the negative the paper is the most important thing, in my journey trying to learn pt/pd one of the most valuable advices I have read was from Arentz, where he states..."dont waste valuable pt/pd solution trying to make the paper work"......I have had Cranes Platinotype and Socorro wet for over 2 hours with no problem. You should really try first some of the more traditional papers, heck Stephen Kinsella will send you 1 sheet if it is all you want to try.
Trust me on this, your life will be a lot easier if you stop hassling with the paper.
