you'll notice two effects -- first, it will coat a lot faster. You'll brush a lot less. This is especially true with Platine. Second, after development, you'll see more even tones.
Don, Exactly what I have found, from quick swirl to nice even coating.

BTW Kerik learned the Everclear trick from you by way of Matt, so Thanks! to you and Matt. One of the best tips for coating I have learned. The other was 'there are no magic bullets' what works for one paper may not work on another and most important for alt printers is "papers change" so buy as much of a lot as you can, it may not be the same next time.
