Agreed Ann, the spotone is rather challenging with glossy RC paper. I spent many years avoiding the task myself until recently, I was "forced" to spot about a dozen 8X10 glossy RC prints. I was given a lesson by a master retoucher from the "old school" and with patience, I was finally able to work out a technique that is quite sucessful. By comparison, FB paper is a snap, as long as it wasn't dried on glazing plates.
